New of­fi­cial to help ful­fill plan

The Denver Post - - NEWS - By Jesse Paul

Den­ver Mayor Michael Han­cock on Tues­day named a key new mem­ber of his ad­min­is­tra­tion who will play a crit­i­cal role in im­ple­ment­ing some 450 projects from the city’s $937 mil­lion bond pack­age ap­proved by vot­ers in over­whelm­ing fash­ion last week.

Eu­lois Cleck­ley will take over as ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of Den­ver’s De­part­ment of Pub­lic Works on Dec. 11, helm­ing one of the most ro­bust arms of city govern­ment, one that man­ages ev­ery­thing from pub­lic in­fra­struc­ture to trans­porta­tion.

“We looked all over the coun­try,” Han­cock said in an­nounc­ing Cleck­ley’s ap­point­ment.

Cleck­ley will come to Den­ver from his role as deputy di­rec­tor of the Hous­ton-Galve­ston Area Coun­cil, where he over­sees trans­porta­tion strat­egy across an eight-county area.

He also served as chief of the field op­er­a­tions di­vi­sion at the Wash­ing­ton, D.C., District De­part­ment of Trans­porta­tion and as a trans­porta­tion and plan­ning con­sul­tant and spe­cial­ist for the U.S. De­part­ment of Trans­porta­tion.

He will make about $190,000 a year.

“A key pri­or­ity of mine will be to en­sure that the projects and ser­vices pro­vided by the De­part­ment of Pub­lic Works are de­liv­ered in an ef­fi­cient and ef­fec­tive man­ner for the res­i­dents of Den­ver,” Cleck­ley said.
