The City of Algoma hired a new public works director this month. Matt Murphy, who previously worked as Kewaunee’s public works director, replaces Mike Decur who left the position in July. Algoma City Administrator Jeff Wiswell says Murphy is already getting up to speed in his new job. As far as Murphy leaving Kewaunee, Wiswell says Kewaunee’s loss is Algoma’s gain.
Wiswell says Murphy’s biggest responsibilities as the public works director include overseeing the wastewater treatment plant as well as the streets and marina in Algoma.
