Madajewski grew up in Edison, N.J., “around the corner” from Menlo Park where Thomas Edison built his lab. He earned a master’s in sanitary engineering from Georgia Tech in 1972.
There is yet no timetable for hiring Madajewski’s replacement according to Design, Environment and Construction director John Maximuk. “We want to get it done as soon after [August 28] as possible,” he said. “Needless to say, it’s a very important position.”
