Troy McCain, who has been with the City since 1995, will supervise the General Maintenance Division.
COVINGTON, Ky. - Covington will soon have a new supervisor to oversee street sweeping, leaf collection, mowing, and other responsibilities in the Public Works Department’s General Maintenance Division - and he’s a familiar face.
Troy McCain is set to be approved as part of the consent agenda at the Covington City Commission’s meeting Tuesday night.
McCain will replace Mike Whatley, who retired in July after over 30 years with the City, including 10 years as the General Maintenance supervisor.
McCain has been acting as interim supervisor since Whatley’s departure. He began working for the City as a seasonal worker in 1995, became a full-time employee two years later, and for the past 17 years has been a light-equipment operator.
“Troy is certainly a very dedicated and skilled employee,” Public Works Director Rick Davis told the Commission at its caucus meeting last week. “He’s a great asset to our Public Works management team.”
Public Works had 43 applications for the supervisor’s position, Davis said.
The General Maintenance Division - which is responsible for maintaining Covington’s public infrastructure - is one of eight divisions in the Public Works Department. Its responsibilities include street cleaning, snow removal, green space and alley maintenance, graffiti abatement, as well as special area litter control and fall leaf collection.
