Shreveport’s New Director Of Public Works Named, Confirmed By Council

The City Council today unanimously approved Mayor Cedric Glover’s appointment of Stanley J. Harris as director of public works. 

Harris, currently Director of Public Works for the City of Kansas City, Mo., has more than 34 years of professional experience, including 26 years experience working in a public works department. 

“I couldn’t be happier to have Stanley Harris join our talented team of department heads,” Mayor Glover said.  “He has the experience, expertise and character that I know will help move our Public Works Department forward and help make our great city even more efficient.”

As director in Kansas City, Harris oversees a department with more than 400 employees and a total budget of $117 million.  He has master’s degrees in urban administration and civil engineering from the University of Kansas and the University of Missouri, and has headed the department since March 2005. 

“He’s a very impressive appointment Mr. Mayor, now let’s make him live up to that resume,” Council Chair Oliver Jenkins said. 

Harris’ first day on the job is Sept. 6. 

“I’m very happy with the confirmation and I’m looking forward to working with the mayor, the council and the staff,” Harris said shortly after receiving news of the confirmation Tuesday.
