Ron Woods Retiring as Public Works Director After 17 years | 12/17/2014
Ron Woods has dutifully served the City of Kentwood for the last 17 years as our Public Works Director.  Ron oversaw $110 million worth of projects over that time and you don’t have to go far to travel on, see, or taste (water) one of his projects!  Ron’s culture of professionalism and excellence will be felt for many years to come.  Thank you Ron for spending your time with us and sharing your talents!
