Baltimore Public Works Director Jason Mitchell resigns amid calls from City Council members to step down

January 10, 2023

Baltimore Director of Public Works Jason Mitchell has resigned after less than two years on the job that included an outbreak of E. coli in the city’s drinking water supply, a state takeover of one of the city’s wastewater treatment plants and mounting criticism from members of the City Council over reduced recycling collection. The announcement came Monday, just hours after Democratic Councilmen Zeke Cohen and Isaac “Yitzy” Schleifer called for Mitchell to resign if significant progress hadn’t been made toward resuming weekly recycling collection in the next eight weeks.
