Lexington council approves new Commissioner of Public Works

May 8, 2014 

A former commissioner of law has been hired by the city to oversee one of the city's largest divisions.

The Urban County Council approved the hiring of David Holmes at its council meeting Thursday as the new Commissioner of Public Works and Environmental Quality. Holmes was the commissioner of law under former Mayor Teresa Issac. Most recently, he served as an assistant city manager in Cincinnati. As commissioner of public works and environment, Holmes will oversee divisions including streets and roads, waste management and water quality. The position has been open since former commissioner Richard Moloney retired last year. Holmes will make more than $117,000 a year. He begins in June.
