O'Callaghan named city director of public service


Dublin filled its new director of public service position recently.

Megan O'Callaghan will serve as the city's new director or public service, a position created after an analysis of Dublin's management system.

"The primary role of the director of public service involves the development and management of the citywide infrastructure assets, maintenance of those assets, and the management of the day-to-day delivery of city services," City Manager Marsha Grigsby said in a news release from the city.

"Megan also will work with division directors to set departmental goals, including the setting of clear customer service standards," Grigsby said.

Because much of the city is "built out," Dublin is concentrating on maintenance, city officials said.

O'Callaghan will oversee the street and utilities, engineering and parks and open space departments.

She will begin working in her new position Jan. 6 with an annual salary of $125,000 plus the usual city employee benefits package.

O'Callaghan comes to Dublin from the Ohio Department of Transportation where she most recently served as deputy director.

"Megan's credentials and work experience are exceptional," Grigsby said.

"She will provide strong leadership in our efforts to continue to provide excellent city services and in maintaining our public infrastructure."
