ATLANTA -- Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed has named Jo Ann Macrina as the city's new commissioner of Watershed Management.
Macrina is a civil engineer and former deputy director of Watershed for DeKalb County. Prior to that, she was deputy director of transportation for the City of Roswell.
Dexter White, who has been acting commissioner, will go back to public works. White took over from former commissioner Rob Hunter, who resigned under fire last September, along with five of his six deputies.
Macrina says she puts customer service, correcting billing irregularities and conforming to the consent decree facing the office as her highest priorities.
Peter Aman, City of Atlanta chief operating officer, has set the end of the year for compliance of the $7 million re-inspection and replacement of faulty digital water meters.
