LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — At the Board of Public Works meeting Tuesday, Jeromy Grenard was introduced as the City of Lafayette's new City Engineer and Public Works Director.
He will be taking over for Jenny Leshney, who headed the Engineering Department for the past twelve years.
A native of Lafayette and a Purdue University post-graduate in Civil Engineering, Grenard will lead the Engineering Department and be responsible for the planning and management of public construction projects.
He will also oversee City Code compliance, and administer all private construction and building permits for the City of Lafayette.
As well as having previously served as Assistant City Engineer for the City of West Lafayette, Grenard has worked in the private sector, most recently with American Structurepoint, Inc., an Indianapolis-based company.
“I am really excited about being involved in everything having to do with City infrastructure. I am looking forward to doing what I can to help make Lafayette even more of a destination and to share its unique qualities with others,” Grenard said.
He added, "I feel a lot of responsibility resting on my shoulders right now. I know that a lot of people depend on what we do in the engineer's office, and wastewater and water."
Grenard says one of the first topics up for discussion coming into his new role was the Restore Sagamore project. As for his goals and aspirations, he says those are still in the making.
