Dave Loveland appointed LeeDOT Director
Dec. 5th Announcement from Lee County Public Works Director, Doug Meurer, to Lee County Staff
I am pleased to announce that Dave Loveland is now the permanent Director of Lee County Department of Transportation.
Dave has been the Interim Director of DOT for almost 6 months and has provided excellent leadership. He has shown great initiative by spending time becoming fully informed about all aspects of DOT operations. Dave has been active in creating organizational changes that have enhanced operations and facilitate better staff communications.
DOT has a history of professional and skilled development and daily maintenance of a safe and reliable transportation network. However, economic conditions, energy costs and social expectations are creating challenges to the use of traditional capacity based transportation planning. Implementation of sustainable practices in planning for the future of our transportation needs is necessary. Dave's background as a planner, coupled with his understanding of the Lee County system, uniquely position him to lead DOT into this transportation future.
I am grateful for Dave's leadership the last 6 months and excited about his future contributions as we continue to meet the challenges ahead of us.
Please congratulate Dave on this newest achievement and provide him your support to assure a successful future.
