  • February 12, 2021

Today, Friday, February 12, 2021, City Administrator David Miller announced that Joseph McCanless would be named the City of Springtown’s next Public Works Superintendent. McCanless was selected to fill the role following the January 30 resignation of James Blackwood.

McCanless joined the City of Springtown Public Works Department in 2015 as a utility tech, and that is where he served until he was named the City’s Building Inspector in early 2019. McCanless brings extensive knowledge of many facets of the City that he gained during his tenure as utility tech and as building inspector which will benefit him as he steps into the role of Public Works Superintendent.

“In the time I have had the privilege of working with Joseph McCanless, I have come to know him as one of the hardest workers employed by the City of Springtown. His work ethic, willingness to complete any task assigned to him, and his ability to work with others in varying capacities will help him excel in this new role and will be a substantial asset to the community as a whole,” Miller said.

McCanless is assuming the responsibilities of Public Works Superintendent at a time when the department is contending with challenges such as rapid community growth, a need to upgrade and expand infrastructure, and the ongoing TxDOT project.

“I am looking forward to the opportunities to serve Springtown this new position will provide me. I am excited to see the progress that the City will continue to make and am grateful that I will be able take part in that,” McCanless said.

McCanless’ appointment to Public Works Superintendent is effective today.
