        DEERFIELD TOWNSHIP — Trustees have decided to make the township zoning administrator Deerfield's new public works director.

        Larry Weis, 51, was chosen unanimously by the board from 72 applicants, including three other township employees.

        Mr. Weis, who begins the job immediately, will be paid about $50,000 a year, a $5,000 salary increase.

        “This switch is going to be quite a challenge and a great opportunity to build this new public works department from the ground up,” Mr. Weis said.

        Before joining the township as zoning administrator in 1997, Mr. Weis was the superintendent of public works in Xenia for 11 years. He also worked five years as an engineering technician for the Kenton County Water District and 11 years with KZF Inc., a Cincinnati-based engineering consulting firm.

        Mr. Weis earned an associate's degree in engineering from Cincinnati Technical College and has taken management courses at the University of Cincinnati.

        He will head Deerfield's newly formed Public Works Department, which handles all infrastructure construc tion and maintenance activities. Mr. Weis will oversee parks, roads, sewer, drainage, water and cemetery projects and services in the township.

        Township Administrator Hazel Dotson said officials have already begun the process of finding a new zoning administrator. In the meantime, Mr. Weis will oversee operations in both the zoning and public works departments, she said.
