Goode returns as interim director of Austin Water

Monday, March 28, 2022 by Elizabeth Pagano

Beginning April 11, Robert Goode will take the helm of Austin’s water utility. After 15 years as the head of Austin Water, Greg Meszaros resigned in February after a citywide boil-water notice was issued due to employee error. For Goode, it will be a return to the city, where he formerly served as an assistant city manager. Most recently, according to a press release from the city, Goode worked as vice president and senior program manager for Lockwood, Andrews & Newnam. “He has directed transportation and infrastructure planning departments at large entities such as the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority, city of Austin, city of Fort Worth, Travis County and city of Olympia, Wash.” Meszaros’ last day in office will be April 8, though he will remain on hand to assist during the transition.
