The Village Administration is responsible for “pulling it all together.” Setting the priorities and strategies of the Village, managing to the Village’s mission statement, ensuring the direction of the Mayor, Council, and compliance standards are being met while ensuring Village operations are successfully implemented. These areas are under the supervision of the Village Administrator. Priorities include maintaining our financial sustainability, improving the physical infrastructure of Village roads and assets, and ensuring comprehensive safety programs are deployed throughout the community.
The Village Administrator is the chief administrative official of the Village, and is appointed by the Mayor and Council. In April of 2018, Ron Hirth was hired as the Village’s Administrator, serving as the Chief Administrative Official. A former Golf Manor mayor and former member of Council, Mr. Hirth has lived in the Village since 2003 and has served over 40 years in the private business sector as well as on several non-profit boards in the Greater Cincinnati area.
During his tenure as Village Administrator, he has annually created a balanced budget in excess of 3 million dollars. The day-to-day operations of the Village, including Police and Public Works departments, are managed by the administrator’s office. He has successfully worked with and negotiated contracts for fire and EMS services as well as successfully secured grant monies for infrastructure projects throughout the municipality, while coordinating services with local, State and Federal sources of support.
Mr. Hirth has managed a variety of projects for the benefit the Village. Some of these include major road, water main, and traffic improvements as well as leveraging grant dollars to purchase and remove blighted properties in the core business district and residential areas.
