Avondale Estates’ new public works director is a familiar face.
The city announced on Monday, April 23, that Bryan Armstead has reclaimed his title as the city’s Public Works Director after leaving the post in 2014. Armstead rejoined the city in 2017 as a public works supervisor and stepped into the director role following the resignation of Oscar Griffin, who was promoted to replace him back in 2014.
City Commissioner Brian Fisher said Griffin resigned in January to pursue “other business opportunities.”
“He did a fantastic job for us,” Fisher said.
Here’s the full announcement from the city of Avondale Estates:
After serving as interim Public Works Director for the City of Avondale Estates for the past several months, Bryan Armstead was recently announced as the permanent director. The Public Works Department works to deliver prompt, efficient, courteous, and reliable services, and maintain the infrastructure to support an active community.
Bryan began with the City of Avondale Estates, serving in many capacities, including serving as Public Works Director. After a brief absence, Bryan returned to the City in 2017 as the Public Works Supervisor. His previous experience includes working as a corrections officer for the Georgia Department of Corrections.
“The City means so much to me,” Bryan said about why he had returned. “Being able to put a smile on people’s faces with a service we provide or a decision we make is an important part of the job. With 19 employees to serve the City’s residents, we may not be the biggest, but we can be the best.”
A native of Georgia, Bryan and his wife of 25 years live in Lilburn. They have one son, Bryan, Jr., who is now a senior at Morehouse College.
