The Trussville City Council on Tuesday approved the former director and county engineer of the Jefferson County Roads and Transportation department to be its next Streets and Sanitation superintendent.
Wayne Sullivan was approved as the next superintendent of Trussville’s Streets and Sanitation department, effective June 29. He will replace Lewis Simpson, who is retiring.
Sullivan has worked with the county since 1991 and served as Vestavia Hills’ city engineer in the late 1980s.
Trussville Mayor Gene Melton has known Sullivan a long time. He called Sullivan a “great addition” for the city of Trussville.
“I think he’ll do an outstanding job for the city,” Melton said.
The city council also approved Megan Patterson as the events manager for the Trussville Civic Center. Patterson has been the events coordinator with the Trussville Area Chamber of Commerce since last year. Prior to that, Patterson worked for 11 years with the Southeastern Conference, some of the time as the assistant director of football operations.
Patterson will still assist with the rescheduled Trussville City Fest on July 13 at The Mall in downtown Trussville. City Fest will be from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. More information on City Fest will be released closer to its rescheduled date.
