Georgia native Jarvis Darnell Middleton brings nearly 40 years of management, engineering, and public works experience to his new job as the county’s new deputy manager of Public Works. He began work with the county this year and replaces former Public Works Deputy Manager Tom Zdunek who was appointed County Manager by the Board of County Commissioners last September.
The former Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Georgia State University graduate has spent the last 12 years of his life as principal and owner of Middleton Consulting in Marietta, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta. Middleton Consulting provides financial and engineering design and consulting services to the civil engineering sector. Before that, Jarvis worked in many other high level positions such as a public works director, solid waste director and commissioner in Pontiac, Michigan, as well as in numerous cities throughout Georgia. He earned two degrees in civil engineering during the 1970s at MIT and holds a masters degree in business administration from Georgia State University.
Bernalillo County’s Public Works Division provides safe, efficient, and high quality facilities and services thanks in part to its long range planning and superior design, construction, and maintenance efforts. It is made up of five departments: Fleet & Facilities Management, Infrastructure Planning/GEO Resources, Operations and Maintenance, Solid Waste and Diversified Services, and Technical Services. The division employs more than 300 people and operates on a $63 million annual budget.
“It is my goal to help our division continue along a path that makes it the kind of organization that will serve as a model for every other public works organization in the country,” Jarvis says.
Jarvis and his wife, Leanne, have been married for 30 years and have four grown children. When he’s not at his desk, he has a wide range of interests. He enjoys learning how to play the guitar and piano, studying philosophy and collecting comic books.
