Secretary

Todd has devoted his career to public service. He serves as Director of Pretrial Release for the Knox County Sheriff’s Department. He is also the President of the Halls Community Park.

Treasurer
Bob Crye

Robert Crye’s background is remarkably diverse, with much of his professional career spent working on issues that directly relate to running an organization like HPUD. He is retired from the Tennessee Valley Authority where he had a direct hand in major projects and controlling the cost of those projects. He has a background as an engineer and has also been a homebuilder. He believes HPUD can be increasingly more efficient while continuing to make sure people have all the water they need for homes and businesses.
