Brigantine Public Works Chief to Retire.

SHOCKER: Beloved Brigantine public works chief; Ernie Purdy, will retire on Dec. 31, 2015 – but will step down from active office at the end of this year. Purdy will have the city pay for accumulated vacation & sick days over a period of time. Ernie will retain the title of superintendent in 2014, but DPW will have an acting superintendent.

Purdy has worked for the city for 32 years, starting in 1981 as a ditch digger.

  1. Sadly, not a shocker. Many long time, hard working, local, dedicated employees are leaving as morale keeps getting worse. Between the politics and City Administration the City continues to lose good people. Soon everyone will be an out of towner, let’s see where they will be during the next major incident or disaster. Public Works has had to do so much more with so much less (equipment and people), I hope those in charge realize this before it’s too late. Ernie, your dedication is much appreciated by this lifelong year round local.
