New public works commissioner named

Lexington Mayor Jim Newberry has named Mike Webb as the active commissioner of public works and development.

Webb, an administrative officer in general services and the acting director of building maintenance and construction, replaces Don Kelly, whose last day was Aug. 15. Kelly retired to spend time with his family, particularly his nine grandchildren, ages 5 to 11.

Webb has been involved in the city's streetscape master plan and the downtown facilities master plan.
