Tucson Water Director Jeff Biggs doesn't want to run the department anymore. The press release:
Tucson Water Director Jeff Biggs today submitted a letter of resignation, citing personal reasons for the voluntary move. Mr. Biggs has been granted a voluntary demotion to be assigned to his previous position as Water Administrator at Tucson Water. Mr. Biggs was appointed to the position of Director of Tucson Water in September of 2008.

will begin immediately. It is anticipated that a new Tucson Water Director will be named by February 2011. Mr. Biggs will remain Tucson Water Director until the position is filled.
“This decision has taken a great deal of time for me and my family in consideration of all the factors related to my position as Director,” Biggs said in a statement.
