County Engineer Todd Leamon has been named by County Mayor Jim Coppinger as county administrator of public works. In addition to his appointment, Mr. Leamon will continue to serve as county engineer.

Mr. Leamon will succeed long time Public Works Administrator Dan Wade who recently retired after almost 28 years of service.

I have worked closely with Todd over the past two years and have been enormously impressed with his leadership skills. Todd has a results-oriented personality that is suited to the challenges of the county’s Public Works Division. Todd is the right person to lead Public Works.

“Todd brings about a positive attitude that people are looking for and does his job well. He is a stellar employee.”

The Public Works Division includes the Hamilton County Engineering Department, where he has been the director for several years. Other departments he will now lead include the highway department, building inspection department, support services and real property.

Mr. Leamon stated, “I look forward to the opportunity to serve Hamilton County as the public works administrator.”

County Mayor Coppinger adds, “Todd brings about a positive attitude that people are looking for and does his job well, he is a stellar employee.”
