Sullivan to retire
Richard Sullivan is stepping down as Biloxi public works director. He is the city’s third director to retire before the end of the year. The Sun Herald reports his last day will be Dec. 21. Sullivan says he is leaving the job to pursue other opportunities.
The 60-year-old Sullivan became public works director in July 2002 after serving for 10 years as manager of ECO Resources, the city’s water contractor at the time. He worked in the public works department from 1983 to 1991, when Biloxi privatized its water and sewer departments. After Hurricane Katrina, his department helped clear streets and restore city utilities.
