Kerski receives Leadership award
City Administrator William Reynolds recently recognized the Director of Planning and Development Michael Kerski with the 2018 Administrator’s Leadership Award.
Kerski, who joined the city in July 2016, was recognized for leading his department's achievements, including transitioning the building and planning divisions to a paperless permit and plan review system, which has sped up the review process. "It is probably the most customer-friendly piece of the organization that we have currently," Reynolds said.
In addition, Reynolds noted Kerski's staff has also updated several development ordinances, as well as adopted a new sign code and zoning table. "He's been phenomenal in what he's achieved," Reynolds said. "He obviously has his staff fine tuned and working to address the growing needs of the city.”
The Administrator's Leadership Award was created in 2016 to recognize instrumental leaders in the organization.
