Ft. Mitchell Hires New City Administrator
Ft. Mitchell has hired a new city administrator.
The city council this week approved the hiring of Sharmili Reddy to replace Chris Moriconi who stepped down last year to take a similar job in Independence where he had previously served as mayor.
“On behalf of the City Council, we look forward to having Sharmili Reddy join our leadership staff and bring fresh perspective to our day-to-day operations,” said Mayor Jude Hehman in a statement. “She is a very detail-oriented professional, bringing all the skills needed to handle the new development project at the old Drawbridge site, along with management of our city departments and budget,”
Reddy has spent ten years as a planning manager at the Planning & Development Services of Kenton County (PDS) and will begin her new job with the city in May. Reddy graduated from college in India and came to the United States where she attended the University of Cincinnati, graduating with a master's degree in community planning.
“I am excited and ready to work with the new Fort Mitchell mayor and council members to implement the vision and goals they have set forth,” Reddy said in a statement. “Fort Mitchell is such a unique and wonderful city and I am honored to have been selected as the new CAO. There is so much happening and I look forward to working with the great people who live and work in our community.”
At PDS, Reddy gained extensive experience working with elected officials, planning agencies, The Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, Tri-ED, Sanitation District 1, and the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments on a number of high level planning and zoning issues. Prior to moving to Northern Kentucky, she served as a senior planner for the Center Regional Planning Agency in State College, PA.
Sharmili Reddy was honored with the Emerging Leader award last week at the Outstanding Women of Northern Kentucky luncheon. She resides in Fort Mitchell with her husband and son and loves to travel in her spare time. “We have made Fort Mitchell our home and love the sense of community,” said Reddy.
