Castle Rock Public Works Director Bob Watts announced Thursday he is
resigning so that he and his wife, Peggy, can return to the Peace
Corps.
Before Watts signed on with Castle Rock in January 2002 the couple
served with the Peace Corps in Papua New Guinea. In their second tour
of duty, the couple will work for two years in Armenia.
“It’s never a good time to leave,” Watts said in a prepared
statement. “This job has been an engineer’s dream.”
During his tenure, Watts oversaw some of the town’s largest
undertakings, including the construction of the Front Street flyover
two months ahead of schedule. Watts also helped bring Front Range
Express service to Castle Rock and negotiated an agreement with RTD
to fund CATCO, the town’s free shuttle bus service.
Assistant Public Works Director Bob Goebel has been named interim
director. Watts said because of the quality of Goebel and the public
works staff, Castle Rock residents “won’t miss a beat.”
Watts brings more than 30 years of engineering experience to his
service in Armenia. His last day with the town will be April 15.
