Kyle Hinton

SPEARFISH, SD – The Spearfish City Council Monday approved the hire of Kyle Hinton as the public works director, effective March 14.

“I am very honored to be offered this position and am excited to get going,” Hinton said.

Hinton has a master’s degree in civil engineering from Texas A&M University and has most recently served as project technical lead for Colorado Springs Utilities, a municipally owned utility. The role involved project management, developing designs, directing the work of staff, financial analysis and planning, mentoring new hires, promoting safety, and assessing community impact.

“Throughout my work experience, I have placed emphasis on the stewardship of the resources entrusted by the community to me to be used for the betterment of all,” Hinton said. “I believe this public works position is one that I can excel in due to my commitment to good stewardship, experience managing budgets across multiple years and under changing revenue dynamics, commitment to safety, and ability to effectively communicate across broad groups of people.”

Hinton was hired to replace Brandy Kean, who resigned as the public works director in November.
