HARBOR SPRINGS — Andi Shepherd, a longtime Emmet County employee and resident, will be taking over as the director of the Department of Public Works.
John Calabrese, Emmet County administrator, announced the promotion Wednesday in an email to county staff and commissioners, which he also forwarded to the News-Review. Shepherd has been working as interim director of the department since former director Elisa Seltzer resigned in January. Before then, Shepherd had worked for several years as assistant to the director.
“I already have a taste of what the job entails,” Shepherd said in an interview with the News-Review. “I’ve been with the department for four years and I know there’s a great team behind me.”
She said her goal is to continue the forward momentum that has consistently brought success — and attention — to the department in past years.
