Longtime New Baltimore Department Superintendent Honored
New Baltimore Wastewater Superintendent Craig Higgins was recognized Monday night at a City Council meeting.
New Baltimore City Council recognized Monday night the dedication and service of longtime Wastewater Superintendent Craig Higgins.
Higgins was not present during the meeting because he has been placed on hospice in recent days, according to city officials.
Councilman Karl Rutledge motioned to recognize his vast accomplishments in overseeing the department, such as waste-water treatment facility upgrades that were completed in 2010.
"He has been instrumental in opening and maintaining the waste-water treatment plant," Rutledge said.
New Baltimore officials spoke of his kind demeanor, sense of humor and eagerness to advance his department.
Higgins has worked for the city for approximately two decades and has a total of 40 years experience in his field, including in nearby communities of New Haven and Richmond, city employees said.
