Millin promoted to police chief; Ray to public works directorPublished 11:14pm Monday, September 12, 2011
Promotions of two long-time Niles city employees have been approved.
Police Chief and Assistant City Administrator Ric Huff, who will replace Terry Eull as city administrator when he retires at the end of
the month, presided over his first council meeting Monday night.
Replacing Huff as police chief will be Capt. James Millin, who has served on the police force for 20 years, including three years as captain.
Millin will be paid an salary of $73,000, to be increased to $73,500 after six months of service and $74,000 after one year of satisfactory service.
Also being promoted is Assistant Public Works Director Joseph Ray — who has served eight years in that position and 10 years with the department — to public works director. He will replace Neil Coulston, who will also retire at the end of the month.
Ray will be paid an annual beginning salary of $70,000, scheduled to increase to $70,500 after six months and to $71,000 after one year.
The council voted unanimously to promote both employees.
