MAYOR NUTTER announced Wednesday that Carlton Williams, a deputy commissioner in the Streets Department, will be the new commissioner of the Department of Licenses & Inspections.

Williams, who oversees the Streets Department's sanitation division and the city's recycling efforts, recently won the city's Richardson Dilworth Award for Distinguished Public Service. He has worked for the city for 12 years, in both the streets and recreation departments.

L&I's current commissioner, Fran Burns, is leaving the administration in early June to head the Pennsylvania Intergovernmental Cooperation Authority.

Williams will be paid $125,000 at L&I, up from his current $114,496 salary, according to the mayor's press office. n
