Amy Atkins assumed the role of general manger of the Brushy Creek Municipal Utility District on Jan. 1.
Atkins succeeds Mike Petter, who transitioned into the district’s new chief financial officer role, also effective Jan. 1. Atkins was selected Nov. 29 after a unanimous vote from the district’s board of directors.
“The re-structure of the District’s organization and the appointments of Ms. Atkins and Mr. Petter further strengthen our commitment and our ability to meet the needs of our taxpayers,” said Rebecca Tullos, board director and treasurer, in a Jan. 8 press release. “These two strong leaders have a combined comprehensive understanding of the Board’s vision, mission and customer service brand, along with extensive knowledge of District operations and experience in management and accounting that will greatly benefit the District’s citizens and the staff.”
Atkins as more than 20 years of experience as a municipal manager, according to the release, and has previously served in a leadership role for a large-scale master planned community; as assistant director of parks, recreation and tourism for College Station; and director of parks and recreation for the city of Pflugerville.
The Brushy Creek MUD was formed in 1977 and serves two non-contiguous areas: Brushy Creek North, which lies between Sam Bass Road and FM 1431, and Brushy Creek South, which is mostly south of FM 620. The district includes the neighborhoods of Sendero Springs, Hillside, Cat Hollow and Highland Horizons.
The district provides water and wastewater services as well as parks and recreation to its residents.
