The city of Gainesville has dropped “acting” from Phil Mann’s title of assistant public works director.

On Thursday, the city announced via a news release that Mann, who has been with city government more than 25 years, has been promoted to fill the position on a permanent basis.

Mann started with the Public Works Department in 1987. He was the longtime traffic operations manager and has served as the department’s acting assistant director since April 1.

“Phil shares the vision of the Public Works Department being a recognized top ten public works organization amongst our peers as he demonstrated through his leadership in the Traffic Management System (TMS) being recognized as a leading TMS in the state of Florida and arguably the country,” Public Works Director Teresa Scott said in the city news release.

The city said there were 48 candidates for the position and that six were interviewed. Mann’s annual salary will be approximately $113,700.
