Operations manager at Iowa DOT named agency's new director
An operations manager at the Iowa Department of Transportation has been named the agency's permanent director.
Gov. Kim Reynolds says she has appointed Scott Marler, a 22-year veteran of the department who has worked in traffic operations, highway project development and regulatory compliance.
He began work on Monday. He succeeds Mark Lowe who was asked to resign by Reynolds in December.
She's cited a change in leadership as her only reason.
Marler was the director of the operations division which has oversight of the construction and materials bureau, maintenance, motor vehicle enforcement and the traffic and safety bureau.
