“Mike has done an outstanding job as the Interim Director and I know he will continue to bring new ideas and energy to the Department. “We conducted a very broad search and interviewed highly qualified professionals. Mike’s dedication to improving customer service and his commitment to the Clarksville community made him the obvious choice,” Mayor McMillan said.
“I have truly enjoyed leading the Building and Codes team as Interim Director and I am very excited to have the opportunity to continue to do so. Providing safe homes and businesses for our citizens is my priority. Mayor McMillan and I have also talked extensively about what we can do to improve our services and help make Clarksville a more business friendly city. I’m looking forward to exploring new ways to help everyone, both the residents and Clarksville’s building industry.”
