Town of Plymouth Announces William Coyle as New Director of Department of Public Works

Plymouth, MA - Town Manager Derek Brindisi has announced the hiring of William Coyle, P.E., as the town’s new Director of Public Works, effective August 28, 2023.

“I am happy to welcome Bill to the town of Plymouth and look forward to him joining our team,” Town Manager Brindisi said. “With more than three decades of state and municipal public works experience, Bill’s leadership on present and upcoming infrastructure projects will advance the Select Board goals as we strive to make Plymouth the best place to work, visit and raise a family in Massachusetts”.

Working under the direction of the Town Manager, the Plymouth Director of Public Works oversees multiple divisions, including Engineering, Water, Sewer, Highway, Airport, Facilities, Parks, Solid Waste, Snow Removal and Cemetery. The department includes more than 150 full-time personnel.

Mr. Coyle has served the past three years as Deputy Commissioner of the Department of Public Works for the City of Worcester, where he helped oversee the operating budget of $100 million, capital budget of $50 million, and 400 full-time employees. 

Prior to his role in the City, Mr. Coyle served as the first Director of Public Works in the Town of Auburn from 2011 to 2021. He is responsible for the reorganization of several departments to establish the Town’s first Department of Public Works and for managing a $5.9 million operating budget and 33 full-time employees and 37 part-time employees. Prior to becoming the Director, he was Auburn’s Town Engineer from 2008 to 2011. Mr. Coyle owned his own engineering firm from 2002 to 2008 and worked previously from 1991 to 2002 at the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) as a Project Development Engineer. 

“I embrace the opportunity to work in the largest Town in Massachusetts,” Mr. Coyle said. “There is so much happening in the Town of Plymouth right now and in the future, including improving on our facilities, the Water Street Sewer Interceptor Project, major roadway improvement projects that will make streets more accessible to all who use them, and of course, the renovation of Stephens Field. I look forward to building upon the great work that has already been done, and enhancing the experience of all those who live, work, and visit Plymouth.”
