Houston Public Works Director Carol Haddock resigns after six years

Houston Public Works Director Carol Haddock submitted her resignation to Mayor John Whitmire on April 24 during that evening’s City Council meeting.

Haddock has served as the city’s director of public works since July 2017. The role was the latest in a career spanning almost two decades with the city of Houston.  Prior to serving as director of public works, she was deputy director of capital projects and senior assistant director for infrastructure and CIP planning.

As director of public works, Haddock oversaw numerous capital projects, most notably involving heavy weather, flooding, water and wastewater.

Whitmire nominated Richard Smith to replace Haddock as interim director of public works. Smith will also serve as interim chief engineer. He will be responsible for all engineering-related decisions, processes and projects until a permanent director is chosen.
