Brushy Creek MUD Names Amy Atkins General Manager
General Manager Will Succeed Mike Petter Who Will Transition into New Chief Financial Officer Role for the District
ROUND ROCK, Texas, November 29, 2018 – The Board of Directors of Brushy Creek MUD, a municipal utility district located between Austin and Round Rock, Texas, has unanimously voted and named Amy Atkins as its new General Manager effective January 1, 2019.
Ms. Atkins’ appointment is in conjunction with the Board’s decision to create a Chief Financial Officer position to be held by Mike Petter, the outgoing General Manager of the District. These two appointments follow a recent re-organization that eliminated certain management positions to ensure that the District’s employment structure allows for more access to technical expertise from staff to the Board, committees and the community. More importantly, according to Board Director and President, Shean Dalton, “These two hires essentially give the District the continued assurance in providing consistent quality service delivery for all our citizens. In addition, the new leadership structure puts us in a great place to continue implementing and sustaining the Brushy Creek Life for the District.”
Ms. Atkins has more than 20 years of experience as a municipal manager who clearly understands municipal government operations. She comes to Brushy Creek with a comprehensive knowledge of state and Federal laws, codes, procedures and regulations, expertise in strategic planning, project and budget management, and a passion for carrying out and sustaining the Brushy Creek way of life.
Before joining Brushy Creek MUD, Ms. Atkins served a leadership role for CCMC, a large-scale master planned community; Assistant Director of Parks, Recreation and Tourism for College Station; and Director of Parks and Recreation for the City of Pflugerville. She holds a Master of Public Administration degree from the University of Texas at Arlington, a Master of Science degree in Recreation Leisure Services from Texas State University, and a Bachelor of Science degree in Recreation Administration, also from Texas State University.
Mr. Petter will transition to the Chief Financial Officer role effective January 1, and will oversee and manage investments, financial planning and budgeting; and Accounting Department. Additionally, Petter will supervise Payroll & Benefits, and Purchasing. Petter will incorporate the Board, Committee and Community goals into the financial goals of the District to ensure increased efficiency in service delivery to the District’s citizens.
"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," notes Rebecca Tullos, Board Director and Treasurer. "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."
