He was promoted to Supervisor in September of 2006 and went to work on making the water department a better place to work.  Robert was promoted to Water Superintendent in August 2010 and continues to build on infrastructure replacement and looking ahead to be able to support growth for the City of Twin Falls.

He resides on a 4th generation 80 acre “hobby” farm that his great grandparents broke out of sagebrush in 1915, where he enjoys raising commodities and cattle. Living on the farm keeps him connected to the importance of water in the agricultural world as well, and how much we all depend on it as life cannot sustain without it.
