Civil engineer added to Gahan’s staff

Summers will monitor projects, assist with traffic plan

NEW ALBANY — New Albany has a full-time city engineer.

Larry Summers — an engineer who has represented Louisville in the public sector and firms such as Presnell Design Group in the private domain — has accepted the position.

Various New Albany City Council members have called for a full-time engineer to be hired, as the city has utilized part-time engineers in the past. A full-time engineer can help the city review construction projects and provide other expertise, council members have said.

Summers is a University of Evansville graduate, and is seeking a master’s degree in Business Administration at Indiana University.

“He will be busy monitoring new construction this first year on projects such as the East Main Street Improvement Project, the Sportsplex [off Silver Street] and the aquatic recreation facility, in addition to analyzing and assisting in the comprehensive traffic plan for downtown,” Mayor Jeff Gahan stated in a news release issued Friday. “This new hire demonstrates our commitment to providing the best quality projects and services to the people of New Albany.”

Summers will be paid about $75,000 a year, Gahan said.
