Animal control director retiring

A longtime county employee familiar to animal lovers in St. Joseph County has announced his retirement.
Animal control director Tom Miller is retiring Oct. 20 following a 28-year career with the Centreville-based agency.
Human resources director Teresa Doehring plans to seek approval from county commissioners to begin searching for a new director
The 60-year-old Miller currently makes about $50,000 annually.
Doehring said she and county administrator Pat Yoder will review the job description to ensure it is current and relevant to the position today compared to when Miller was hired in the 1980s.
Yoder said there have been discussions about folding the department under the jurisdiction of the sheriff’s department. That concept, however, remains an ongoing discussion.
Including Miller, animal control has a staff of two full-time and three part-time employees.
