He’s the new kid on the block building the blocks.
Dave Lipinski last October took the reins of Queen Creek’s Capital Improvements Program Department and it’s no small job.
He oversees a staff of 19 employees charged with executing an infrastructure program that totals $531 million in spending in the fiscal year beginning July 1.
“What we hope to bring is uniformity in project delivery,” he said.
Lipinksi brings a wealth of knowledge he learned serving as a city engineer for the City of Scottsdale for the past 10 years.
Now, he heads a department created last year to respond to Queen Creek’s own rapid growth – a job he said brings its own unique challenges compared to Scottsdale.
