Michael H. Johansson Selected as New City Manager
The Port Orange City Council selected Michael H. "Jake" Johansson as its new city manager in July. Johansson is a recently retired Navy Captain. He last served as the Commanding Officer of the U.S. Naval Support Activity, Hampton Roads, Virginia.

Johansson's distinguished military service also includes serving as the Operations and Readiness Officer, Commander Naval Air Forces, Coronado, California and as Commanding Officer and Executive Officer, Patrol Squadron Four, Kaneohe, Hawaii.

Johansson also spent three years in the White House as a Naval Aide to former Vice President Cheney. His educational background includes a Masters of Public Administration and Bachelor of Applied Science, Resource Management, and extensive training from U.S. Navy Leadership Schools.

"I want to thank the community for welcoming me." Johansson said. "My family and I are looking forward to being part of this community. I follow in some big footsteps of Interim City Manager David Harden, and I intend to continue Mr. Harden's goodwill and good work. I have a progressive plan to organize the staff, and to get us moving in the right direction. I look forward to the challenge of being City Manager and working for you."

Utilities Dept. to Conduct Annual Treatment of Water System
The Port Orange Utilities Department will perform its annual flushing of the water distribution system beginning Monday, August 24, 2015. The treatment is done to improve water quality and is referred to as the "annual flushing and treating of the Water Distribution System."

The scheduled completion date of the treatment and flushing is no later than Monday, October 6, 2015. During this six-week period, the city will change its disinfectant residual to free chlorine. As always, the water will be of the highest standards and safe to drink. However, some customers may notice a slight difference in the taste of the water. We appreciate your understanding during this operation as we strive to improve your water quality.

Besides the Port Orange Distribution System, this treatment will cover Harbor Oaks, Allandale, Ponce Inlet, Wilbur by the Sea, and Daytona Beach Shores north to Thames Avenue.

If you have any questions regarding this procedure, please contact the Port Orange Water Treatment Plant at 386-506-5770. Information on the procedure can be found under the Drinking Water FAQ section of the Public Utilities department.
