Boiling Spring Lakes’ new city engineer has 30 years of civil engineering experience in the private sector and a strong educational background.
The city has announced the employment of William G. Murphy for the newly created role.
Murphy will be paid an annual salary of $75,000 plus benefits and will begin work August 11.
“Mr. Murphy was one of five interviewees for the position,” city manager Jeff Repp said. “Based on his varied experience in engineering, including dealing with local governments on a variety of issues, he quickly rose to the top of the potential applicants. I’m pleased that he has agreed to come on board and develop this new position created by the city’s board of commissioners.”
Murphy completed his undergraduate work at Manhattan College, graduating cum laude with a degree in civil engineering. He received his master’s degree in the same field from Northwestern University in 1981. He also holds a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Connecticut.
“I am very excited about it, for the city engineer has a profound impact on infrastructure improvements and safety for the general public,” Murphy said. “I understand what that is like, for I have a broad-based geotechnical and civil background. I am particularly interested in creating this new role of city engineer.”
Murphy said he has had experience evaluating earthen dams, in wastewater collection and distribution, drainage and road system design, and geohydrology.
He recently served as vice-president for Urban Engineers in Hartford, Connecticut, and was director of engineering and operations for AI Engineers in nearby Middletown from 2008 to 2010.
