Annapolis has a new acting city manager. David Jarrell, the city's director of public works. Jarrell, who has been in charge of public works since 2010, is taking over the city manager's position while the city continues the search for a permanent city manager, Mayor Mike Pantelides announced.
Jarrell replaces the most recent acting city manager, Brian Woodward, who resigned at the end of July. Woodward was also the city's recreation and parks director.
Since Pantelides took office in December, Annapolis has lost its city attorney, city manager, assistant city manager, planning director, transportation director and recreation and parks director through resignations and firings. Pantelides also replaced several aides in his office.
Marcia Patrick, the assistant director of public works, will be acting director of public works while Jarrell acts as city manager.
Harbormaster J.P. "Flip" Waters has been running both his department and the recreation and parks department in recent months.
