(Beaver Dam) The Beaver Dam Common Council Monday night approved the hiring of a major department head. Todd Janssen is the city’s new Director of Facilities/ Engineering Coordinator/ Project Manager. Janssen replaces Ritchie Piltz who took a similar job in Watertown last year. Janssen has 17 years of experience working with MSA Professional Services, which is the city of Beaver Dam’s contract engineer. His salary is $103-thousand dollars. Janssen has worked on several Beaver Dam projects during his time with MSA and his hiring is expected to reduce some of the engineering costs that the city may otherwise outsource. Janssen’s hiring is effective with last night’s approval.
