Dexter Township has a new Township Ordinance Enforcement Officer. She is Sharon Stone-Francis, who currently works in a similar position in Genoa Township.
The board unanimously approved Stone-Francis at its July 21 meeting to effectively start on August 10 or as soon thereafter as she is available for training. Her starting pay rate will be commensurate with the approved Township pay schedule for an entry level Ordinance Enforcement Officer.
Stone-Francis spoke to the board and took questions.
“I’ve been in law enforcement for 23 years and know the process,” she said. “I haven’t run into any big, conflictive issues and always confer with my bosses to give them a heads up.”
Stone-Francis also works at the W.J.Maxey Boys Training School in Green Oak Township and will work two days a week in Dexter Township.
“I have known Sharon since 1991 and she has worked for me as a law enforcement officer,” said Dexter Township Supervisor Harley Rider. “I was impressed with her during her interview and I highly concur with Zach Michel’s (Director of Planning and Zoning) evaluation and recommendation.”
Stone-Francis lives in South Lyon and says she used to work at Hudson Mills Metropark and is used to the commute.
Bart Hamilton left the post in the spring and Mike Auerbach, the summer planning and zoning intern, was appointed by the Board of Trustees to the position on an interim basis.
