His last day of service to the County will be February 15, 2008.

Obviously, I will miss them and wish them well, but feel the County's Engineering Department is well positioned to tackle the future challenges facing this community."
At Washington County, McGee headed the Engineering Department, with 25 employees and an operating budget of 1.9 million dollars. In Fiscal Year 2008 Capital Improvement Projects managed by the office were budget at 13.2 million dollars.
