CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

There will soon be a new Public Works Director for Cedar Rapids.

The city named Jen Winter, P.E. to the position of Public Works Director/City Engineer.

Winter was previously Regional Director at HR Green, since 2004. In that position, Winter led the engineering firm's Iowa transportation team, supervised project managers across the organization, and collaborated with municipalities from across the state of Iowa.

The City conducted a national search starting in February to fill the position.

“We have experienced Jen's tremendous talent and abilities first-hand through her work as a consultant on some of our highest profile projects, including the Paving for Progress long-term street improvement plan and the Flood Control System,” said Sandi Fowler, Assistant City Manager-Development Services. “We look forward to the valuable experiences she will bring to the City and to the critical work we are undertaking together on behalf of our community.”

Winter will start her new position effective April 13, 2015.
