Changes in the Ohio Public Employee Retirement System will result in the retirement of more employees than usual this year. Come Dec. 31, we will have lost more than a dozen employees with a combined total of about 400 years of service.
They will be difficult to replace. We have others who are eager to fill the void, but anytime you lose that kind of experience, it takes a toll on a business. We will work hard to ensure the transitions are seamless to the public and service is not impacted.
Many of the people who are leaving are dedicated public servants who gave more than 30 years of their lives to serving Hamilton County residents. I am extremely grateful for their commitment and proud to have served along side them.
They will be missed.
