Boryschuk Resigns Post
As Director of Utilities
Caroline County Director of Public Utilities John Boryschuk has resigned to accept an offer from the District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority.
Boryschuk submitted his letter of resignation at a meeting with County Administrator Percy Ashcraft Wednesday morning. The resignation is effective October 8.
Boryschuk was hired January 21, 2009 as Director of Public Utilities. His responsibilities broadened during his tenure when the Public Utilities and Public Works departments combined to create one Public Utilities Department in July, 2009. He oversees 49 employees which includes several part-time employees at the solid waste convenience sites.
Ashcraft said that Boryschuk contributed a great deal in a short time with Caroline County.
“This is a difficult loss for our organization, but I wish John well in his new position,” commented Ashcraft. “He brought a special professionalism to the position that was well received by all who work with him. I thank him for his contributions to advance the Public Utilities Department.”
Ashcraft will begin immediately to transition the department after Boryschuk departs. He will brief the Board of Supervisors at its September 21 meeting and then announce both an interim and long-term plan to fill the position.
