Wildwood Crest names new Superintendent of Public Works


WILDWOOD CREST – The Borough of Wildwood Crest has named a new Superintendent of Public Works. 

Steven Shearer, who had been serving as assistant superintendent of the department for the past 12 ½ years, was officially elevated to superintendent in late April. 

Shearer brings vast experience to the position. As assistant superintendent, he helped oversee all operations of the Wildwood Crest Department of Public Works, during his tenure. 

Shearer is certified as a Public Works Manager. He also serves the Borough of Wildwood Crest as its Safety Coordinator, Clean Communities Coordinator, Certified Pool Operator and Right To Know Coordinator. 

“Steve has been the assistant superintendent of our public works management team for the past 12 ½ years, so he has the kind of extensive knowledge, skills, training and experience needed to oversee the department as superintendent,” said Don Cabrera, Wildwood Crest Mayor and Commissioner of Public Works. 

“I’m confident Steve will continue to be an asset to not only the Department of Public Works, but also to the Wildwood Crest community at large. I know he will do his best to make sure the Department of Public Works continues to serve our residents and visitors to the best of its ability.” 

Shearer came to the Borough of Wildwood Crest after serving as the Director of Operations for Seapointe Village Realty Co. for 17 years. 

A resident of Wildwood, Shearer holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in business administration from California University of Pennsylvania. He previously volunteered as a youth wrestling coach and a Little League baseball coach in the Wildwood Crest community. 

“I’m excited about the opportunity to continue with and finish my career with Wildwood Crest,” Shearer said. “I truly would like to thank the borough administration and commissioners for their faith and confidence in me. I’ll do my best to work tirelessly to improve the service provided by the Department of Public Works and commit to serving the residents and visitors of Wildwood Crest.” 

Shearer replaces Joseph Bond as the Superintendent of Public Works. Bond retired from the position earlier this spring.
