NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - The Natchez Public Works Department is short-handed.

After deciding to expand public works, Natchez Mayor Butch Brown tells The Natchez Democrat (https://bit.ly/1ROPG80) the city has been seeking to add three positions within the department.

Brown said the city is currently interviewing applicants for a public works clerk, engineering technician and someone to manage traffic control and street projects.

The decision to expand public works came after the city ended its 10-year inter-local agreement with Natchez Water Works, and decided not to hire a replacement city engineer after David Gardner retired from the position in April.

Brown said this decision was made in an effort to make public works more streamlined, and eliminate costs associated with Natchez Water Works and paying an in-house engineer.
