After a four-month nationwide search, Lower Merion officials have chosen an administrator from Wisconsin to take over the reins at the Department of Public Works.
Ernest M. Winters, past superintendent for public works in the small Milwaukee suburb of Brown Deer, has replaced Bert L. Williams, who retired
from the department in January. Winters finished his first full week Friday.
Winters, 34, who takes over a 140-staff department with five divisions, said he was attracted to the position because of the size of the township and the challenges it presented. He is married and has a 15-month-old son.
