GREENFIELD – The city has a new public works director.

Mayor William Martin has hired Marlo Warner II, a former public works worker and manager who had left the city to run the public works department in Hadley.

He will assume his duties on a date to be determined in early October.

“Marlo is the ideal person to address the critical needs of the DPW and to prepare a schedule for the infrastructure needs,” Martin said in announcing the hire. “His knowledge of all areas of the department and familiarity with our personnel is extremely advantageous for the city,” said Martin. “We are fortunate to have his institutional history and experience back in Greenfield. Marlo loves the city and the DPW and is truly motivated to perform to the best of his ability for the residents.”

Warner worked for 16.5 years in both labor and management positions. In 2016 he was awarded the Mayoral Certificate for dedicated public service. Later in 2016 he was hired away by Hadley. Before working for Greenfield, he also worked for Shelburne Highway Department and Renaissance Excavating of Gill.

“I am excited to come back to my hometown and serve the taxpayers of Greenfield,” Warner said in a press statement issued by the mayor’s office. “This opportunity is a little bittersweet as the Town of Hadley has been a great town to work for. I’ve had 2½ very successful and productive years in Hadley and I feel this experience will be helpful in my transition and beneficial in assisting the completion of ongoing projects within the Town of Greenfield. I take pride in customer service, communication, and running an efficient department. I am looking forward to working with the mayor, fellow department heads, Town Council, and the staff of the DPW to meet Greenfield’s goals and mission.”

Warner is a military veteran having served in the Air Force as an aircraft armament systems specialist for about four years, leaving active duty on 1988 when he transferred into the Air National Guard as a full time trainer for the weapons system on the standardization crew for the F-15 aircraft.
