In a sense, Bill Ebron has been here before.

The 40-year-old who has been working with the city of Havelock since 1995 has just been given a promotion to director of the Public Services Department.

He replaces Dan Harbaugh, who resigned in July to take another position.

Ebron has served as interim public services director since Harbaugh left and at other times when the position was unfilled. He has been assistant public services director since 2010.

"One of the benefits for me taking this role is that there really is no learning curve," he said. "I was able to step into something that I was already a part of. A lot of the residents already know me. I know most or all of the problems that we are faced with, so I can hit the ground running."

Ebron, a native of the Riverdale community just west of Havelock, is a 1990 graduate of Havelock High School and a 1994 graduate of East Carolina University.

"Public service is the heart and soul of the city of Havelock," Ebron said. "Public services is here to serve. That’s what our job is, to serve our community. That involves everything from the water coming from their tap to the sewage going out, to the water in their ditches, to the trash going out to the streets that they drive on."
