Northville Welcomes New DPW Director Loyd Cureton
(City of Northville, March 25, 2018)
Northville, MI – Loyd Cureton was named director of the Department of Public Works (DPW) for the City of Northville and began his new role on March 5. Cureton oversees the delivery of essential services to the community, including water service, sewer, snow plowing and roads maintenance.
He will develop and implement projects that impact the city infrastructure and capital improvements, and will provide oversight to new development in the city, working with community leaders to ensure new construction is built to quality standards set forth in the city code.
Cureton has more than 26 years of experience at all levels of government, from planning and zoning to building and road systems, and has managed a cemetery. He comes to the city from Ferndale, where he served as DPW director. Prior to that, he worked for the City of Walled Lake for 20 years, first as a water technician, then for 18 years as DPW director. He graduated from Northville High School and has numerous certifications in the public works field. He succeeds Jim Gallogly, who retired.
“Taking the job at Northville gives me the hands-on approach that I prefer. I like to interact with the staff and people in the field, and love being out in rain and snow.” The Northville native added, “This job is a ‘coming home’ for me.
“You need public works every day to keep the streets plowed, keep the sewer system from backing up, and ensure the water is safe to drink. People assume that’s it going to work, and it’s my job to make sure it does,” he said.
He is eager to meet the residents and business owners and work with contractors on public works projects. “I will be available and approachable. I will return phone calls as soon as possible. I want to get to know what people’s concerns are.”
Cureton and his wife, Dianne, live in New Hudson. They have three grown children and three grandchildren.
