City of Williston chooses Public Works Director as new city administrator

By  | 

WILLISTON, N.D. - Following a process that's gone on almost all year, Williston now has a City Administrator.

Out of three finalists, Williston's Public Works Director David Tuan has been chosen as the first for the position. His connection to Williston made him ideal for the position.

"You know, he has the relationships, I guess, and that's how we've all survived out here is off relationships. He's got the rapport and relationship with city staff already, whether it's public works department, fire department, police department, any of the departments, and I think that's a big deal," says Tate Cymbuluk, Williston City Commission.

"I'm very excited to explore how the other departments have been operating and work a little more closely with the commission and the public. Working in Public Works has been the most rewarding position I've had professionally, ever. And I've enjoyed it, I enjoy working with the people here but at the same time I'm excited to expand that knowledge-base beyond the engineering and Public Works," says David Tuan, Williston City Administrator.

Tuan will start his new position in November.
