Levee district hires operations manager
The St. Mary Parish Levee District hired Michael Brocato Jr. for the newly created position of operations manager to start July 1. The position was advertised and the district received more than 30 resumes, levee district executive director Tim Matte said at the June 13 levee district meeting.
The operations manager will be responsible for daily check of the levees and for visiting projects under construction, Matte said in March.
Matte narrowed the field to eight candidates and after interviewing some of the candidates a couple times, he hired Brocato.
“Mike has got some experience in both levee construction and in general construction handling emergency situations, both from the standpoint of prevention and recovery, all of which kind of fits with our charge,” Matte said.
