City Engineer Announces Retirement

Long time Branson City Engineer David Miller is retiring. In 1990 Miller was hired as Branson’s first City Engineer and has managed all major capital construction projects in the city for the past 28 years. A graduate of the University of Missouri – Columbia with a degree in Civil Engineering, he has since been honored by the University with membership into the Academy of Distinguished Alumni. He started the City’s engineering department with no employees and now manages a staff of 58.

In 2009 Miller was recognized as one of the best in North America when he was selected as a Top Ten Public Works Leader of the Year by the 30,000 member American Public Works Association.

His project management in Branson for utility projects alone has included 3 major wastewater treatment projects, 2 water treatment projects, innumerable sewage lift stations, 5 water towers and miles of sewer and water lines. In transportation projects, he oversaw the construction of every major arterial and collector road in Branson including the bridges on the Shepherd of the Hills Expressway, Gretna Road, James F. Epps Road and Branson Landing Boulevard. Other transportation projects he managed included the installation of 16 traffic signals and the city’s roundabouts. Miller also accomplished the construction of several city buildings including the new city hall, the RecPlex, 3 fire stations and the Community Center.

“David Miller has spearheaded many projects, large and small for the City of Branson. I want to personally thank David for his commitment to the City of Branson. I hope his retirement is filled with many great days making new memories while remembering the old memories,” said Branson Mayor Karen Best.

Miller says his biggest challenge was the development, design and construction of international award winning Branson Landing including the Branson Convention Center. He is proud of the fact that the $300 million Branson Landing project has made such an enormous positive impact on the community and its economic growth.

“I am fortunate Branson has allowed me to be involved in organizations that have made impacts both locally and state wide,” Miller said.

Miller has served as President of the Transportation Engineers Association of Missouri, President of the Missouri Chapter of the American Public Works Association, founding member of the Ozarks Chapter of the Institute of Transportation Engineers, Chairman of the Taney County Transportation Advisory Board and Chairman of the Chamber of Commerce Transportation Committee.

Miller’s last day is February 9th the public is invited to a retirement party in his honor, February 8th at 2:30pm at the engineering department in City Hall.
