Tim Morris

The City of Covington will be looking for a new utilities director after Tim Morris turned in his resignation to Covington City Manager Leigh Anne Knight Monday.

“He has been a great asset,” Knight said. “We’re really going to miss him.”

Knight said she was shocked by Morris’ resignation.

Morris has been employed by the city in that position since 2014. His last day will be April 14.

Knight said the city will be looking for someone of Morris’ caliber to fill the position. The utilities director is responsible for the city’s electric and natural gas departments and public access channels as well as expansion of utility systems, acquisition of electrical generating capacity and natural gas pipeline capacity.
