New community planning chief introduced



The Enquirer

Michael Cervay, the new director of the Department of Community Development and Planning, was introduced to Cincinnati City Council Wednesday by City Manager Valerie Lemmie. Cervay has more than 30 years of experience in public service. He is currently employed by the city of Indianapolis as director of Strategic Planning and Development for the Indianapolis Housing Agency.

Cervay worked for Cincinnati from 1974 to 1980 as the city's community assistance officer. He will receive a salary of $92,300 and begin work Nov. 22.

Cervay, a University of Cincinnati graduate, acknowledged that the department had problems, but quickly added he saw it as an opportunity to grow.
