Shreveport will be looking for a new Public Works Director. Shreveport Mayor Adrian Perkins has announced the termination of Public Works Director Mike Wood.

Wood told KTBS that Perkins has said that he wants to "go in a different direction".

Wood has been a Shreveport City employee for over two decades, and was promoted to the Public Works Director position under the administration of former Mayor Ollie Tyler.

This is now the second vacancy at the top of a Shreveport department. Henry Thompson, the Director of the Shreveport Regional Airport, resigned last week.
