Mayor Craig A. Moe is sorry to announce the passing of Mr. Teddy R. Dulaney, former City of Laurel Director of the Department of Public Works.


Mr. Dulaney began his career with the City in the Department of Public Works in 1985 as a Laborer II. He was promoted in 1986 to Project and Facilities Inspector then promoted to Engineering Coordinator in 1990, and Deputy Director in 1993.  Mr. Dulaney was appointed Director of Public Works by Mayor Moe in 2002 where he served until his retirement in 2007.


Two major projects that Ted was an integral part of were the Laurel Factory House/Laurel Museum and the Fairall Foundry Public Works Complex. 


Throughout his career, Ted was a consummate team player who enjoyed his work. Ms. Kristie Mills, former City Administrator, remembers that “Ted always wanted to do a good job, get things done quickly and efficiently.  He had a heart for Laurel …”


City Administrator Lou Ann Crook remembers Ted’s meticulous work preparing the annual General Operating and Capital Improvement Program Budgets.  “Ted was a good planner, was realistic in his anticipation of project and operational costs.  He really worked hard to guarantee the best value in the use of City taxpayer funds.”


Mayor Moe has ordered the City flag lowered to half-staff through November 16th in memory of Ted.
