MAYOR NAMES ENVIRONMENTAL DIRECTOR AND DEPUTY DIRECTOR
Mayor Jeremy Harris announced today (July 26) the appointment of Timothy E. Steinberger as Acting Director of Environmental Services and Frank J. Doyle as Deputy Director.
“I am pleased that these two experienced and capable administrators will lead our City’s environmental programs,” the Mayor said. “They bring a wealth of engineering knowledge to a department that protects our environment with services that touch every person in our community.”
Steinberger has been the Environmental Services Deputy Director since January this year. He was the Planning Branch Chief with the Department of Design and Construction from 1997 through 2000 and the EPA Programs Manager for the former Department of Wastewater Management from 1994 through 1997. He also served as an engineer in the private sector. He has a BSME degree from the University of Maryland, College Park (1981) and MSME degree from the University of Hawaii, Manoa (1983). His appointment as director is subject to confirmation by the City Council.
Frank Doyle has been Chief of the Refuse Collection and Disposal Division since 1977, except from 1990 to 1993, when he served as the Manager and Chief Engineer for the Office of Rapid Transit. He earned a BSCE degree from Pennsylvania Military College (1959) and an MSCE degree specializing in the environmental and sanitation fields (1976). He designed and constructed chemical complexes throughout the United States and Mexico for about 10 years before moving to Hawaii in 1970.
The Department of Environmental Services, one of the city’s largest agencies, manages Honolulu’s wastewater, storm water and solid waste disposal systems.
