The man who has been the City of Madras' second in command is moving up to the top position. The Madras City Council selected current Public Works Director Gus Burrill to replace Mike Morgan, who is retiring next month. Mayor Melanie Widmer says the vote was unanimous: “We've seen the work he's done in the Public Works Department, and the Department has done amazingly well getting grants. We're able to do a lot of projects thanks to the grants. They are a lot of work to apply for and follow through. But he did really we l and we believe he will continue to do that as City Administrator.” Burrill will take over as City Administrator on December 19th.
