La PORTE — After more than four decades on the job, the head of La Porte’s water department has hanged up his hat – and a veteran city employee has stepped up to fill his shoes.

The city has named Tim Werner, a nine-year city hall employee, as the next water superintendent, in a press release on Wednesday. Werner has taken over the office from Todd Taylor, who has retired after 41 years as the head of the city’s waterworks.
