Dawson County now has a new leader for one of its pivotal infrastructure departments. 

New Public Works Director Jeffery Hahn was announced at the Board of Commissioners’ May 19 work session. His first day was May 18. 

He replaces former director Denise Farr, who undertook the position for about a year before retiring and leaving at the beginning of May. 

Hahn previously worked for the Brevard County government for 31 years before retiring in 2018, according to his resumé provided by Public Affairs Officer Laura Fulcher.  

Hahn brings with him 22 years of experience in county administrative, management and supervisory roles. Most recently, he was the Senior Director of the GIS & Cadastral Services Department within the Brevard County Property Appraiser’s Office. 

He’s also been the Engineering Tech Supervisor of Brevard County’s Civil Engineering Design and Review Department.

During a brief introduction to the board, Hahn said he “looks forward to serving the community and the citizens of Dawson County.”
