Kearns appoints Dvoraczky to lead City Administration and Operations; Miller promoted
Grandview Heights, OH – Mayor Greta M. Kearns appointed the leadership of her administrative team at the January 6th City Council meeting, filling a key position following the retirements of Mayor DeGraw and Director of Administration Patrik Bowman.
“I am thrilled that [Finance] Director Dvoraczky has agreed to step into the lead role in my Administration, directing operations and serving as Chief of Staff for the Grandview Heights,” said Kearns. “He’s served as an outstanding Finance Director for over eleven years, modeling sound fiscal policy and earning the trust and respect of directors, staff, and elected officials. His forward-thinking philosophy, extensive knowledge of City operations, and dedication to our continued success as a City give me great confidence in his ability to lead as we turn the page and enter a new era.” Dvoraczky said, “I enthusiastically accept this new challenge and opportunity offered by Mayor Kearns to have a broader role in her administration. This role will afford me the ability to reflect on the successes we have had thus far; review existing practices, and react to and elevate our ability to invite innovation and technology into the delivery of our city services.”
City Council filled Dvoraczky’s vacancy with ten-year veteran Megan Miller who was serving as the assistant director of the Finance Department.
“Director Miller has demonstrated many years of strong leadership in her position as assistant director,” said council president Emily Keeler. “We are delighted to see her promoted into this new role and look forward to her continued expertise and leadership with the Finance Department.”
In addition to the new appointment, Kearns introduced legislation that will enable her to restructure the Administration, including proposing new roles for an Assistant to the Mayor and a Director of Information Technology.
