From City of Lubbock:

Chief Operating Officer Marsha Reed has announced her resignation from the City of Lubbock, effective March 1, to become an assistant city manager for the City of Chandler, Arizona. Reed began working for the City of Lubbock in February 1993 and was named chief operating officer in August 2009. She received her bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering from Texas Tech in 1988 and graduated with her master's in Public Administration from Texas Tech in 2000.

Lubbock City Manager Lee Ann Dumbauld said Reed will be missed.

"Marsha is exceptionally talented and has done a tremendous job leading our public works departments," said Ms. Dumbauld. "Her expertise and knowledge will be greatly missed. I wish her and her family all the best in the future."

During her years at the City, Reed was responsible for a wide range of highly visible public projects, including the Lake Alan Henry Pipeline Project, the South Lubbock and South Central Drainage Projects, the 34th Street Renovation Project, and miles of other street projects.

She also served on various regional, state, and national organizations, including serving as president of the Texas Public Works Association (TPWA) and as a member of the Texas Municipal League Board of Directors. Among her honors, Reed received the Engineer of the Year award from the Texas Society of Professional Engineers in 2006 and was named one of the Top Three Public Works Leaders of the Year by the Texas Chapter of the American Public Works Association in 1998.
