Volusia County Public Works Director Ben Bartlett oversees more than four hundred employees and an expansive array of services, including road and bridge, traffic engineering, engineering and construction, stormwater management, mosquito control, water resources and utilities, solid waste, recycling, and coastal activities.

To help Bartlett manage the department, the Volusia County Council appointed Arden Fontaine as the new Public Works Deputy Director.

Fontaine started as a land records manager in Lake County before working as a geographic information system specialist for Volusia County. He has a bachelor’s degree in applied mathematics from the University of Connecticut and a master’s degree in geography from the University of Memphis.

“You’re not going to find anyone who outworks Arden Fontaine,” Recktenwald told council members moments before they unanimously approved Fontaine’s promotion.

Fontaine accepted the praise, but he also acknowledged his co-workers.

“In the end, technology only takes you so far,” Fontaine told the council. “It’s the people. Public Works has the most outstanding, hard-working, and dedicated staff that I’ve ever had the opportunity to work with, and I’m proud to be one of them.”
