Leinbach also announced that Code Compliance Officer Sal Scrozzo has been named the city’s Employee of the Year.

Leinbach, who has served as city manager for 14 years, is traditionally the chamber’s October Luncheon speaker and gives an update on the “State of the City.” This was his last such presentation as he plans to retire in January.
“The best government is a government closest to you,” Leinbach said at the end of his presentation. “… Thank you for allowing me to serve as your city manager.”
