Frankfort, IN – Greg Miller was sworn in as a member of the City’s Board of Public Works and Safety this morning following the May 31 resignation of Board Member Mark Mitchell. According to state statute, a person must be a resident of the city in order to serve as a member of the Board of Works. Mark Mitchell recently moved out of the city, which necessitated this change in appointments.
“When I appointed Mark, I knew it was a temporary appointment. I am grateful for his guidance and leadership over the past few months,” Sheets said. “We appreciate all Mark has done for the city and wish him the very best in the future.”
In announcing his appointment of Miller to replace Mitchell, Sheets cited Miller’s impressive record of EMS, fire department, and public safety achievements.
“Greg has worked for the City of Frankfort for more than 30 years. His leadership skills and dedication to the city will be invaluable,” Sheets said. “I know I can rely on Greg’s strategic thinking and relentless commitment to excellence. He will be an asset to me and to the Board of Works.”
Miller currently serves as a Lieutenant for the Frankfort Fire Department and as the EMS director for Clinton County. Miller officially joined Mayor Sheets and fellow BOW member Megan Sheets on June 1, 2020.
The Board of Works is the chief administrative governing body of the city. It has control of the daily operations of all city departments, including the Building Services, Police, Fire, Street, and Parks Departments. The Board serves as a liaison between the Mayor, city departments, and Frankfort citizens.
The Board of Works meets on the second and fourth Mondays of each month at 5:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers in the basement of Old Stoney. They also hold a work session every second and fourth Wednesday of each month at 11:00 a.m. in the Old Stoney conference room. Residents are welcome to attend these meetings.
