New public works director plans sewer, road improvements

You might say Patrick Dean is a sewer enthusiast. Three months into his job as Moab’s Public Works Director, the top projects on his list are all sewer system improvements. In his office, surrounded by maps and plans, Dean described “a nice gravity sewer line” he’d like to build along the western side of U.S. Highway 191 on the north end of town, explaining how it would make life simpler for the property owners there. “They’re into the business of being hotel operators, not sewer operators,” Dean said. “I’m going to try to get them out of that job.” That attitude sums up Dean’s approach to the job. “That’s our whole goal – to be a better steward for the taxpayers,” he said.
