(Port Angeles) -- It's official...Port Angeles public works director Glenn Cutler is retired.

He was given a big sendoff party Tuesday afternoon at the Vern Burton Center, with all city department heads, many staff persons, and old friends who have worked with him over the years in attendance.

City Manager Dan McKeen emceed the program, and portrayed Cutler as a man who has worn many hats, including one of a U.S. Navy captain, firefighter, hard hat, and even a Washington State University baseball cap.

The police department thought it was only fitting to give him a doughnut-making machine, with the caveat that he save some of them for the cops.

Cutler has been famous for his one-word answers to our insightful and probing questions, but he was a little more outgoing when we asked him to look back on his career here, and future plans.

"It been a wonderful opportunity to work at the city of Port Angeles. It's a great community and people should be proud of it. I'm real proud of the fact I was able to contribute positively to the community. There's a lot to look around and see that we've done together. I look forward to being a normal citizen in the area have less press coverage," said Cutler.

City officials say it's been a smooth transition as Glenn Cutler steps down and Craig Fulton takes over. Fulton is only the third Public Works Director for the city in the last 30 years. Like Cutler, Fulton has been a Captain in the US Navy.
