You may have noticed that the City’s roundabout at Market & Main has a new name. Several years ago, City Council decided to name this roundabout after Joe Stefanov, New Albany’s city manager since 2000, in recognition of New Albany’s accomplishments under his leadership. As city manager, Joe is appointed by City Council to serve as New Albany’s CEO. Like many private sector CEO/Board relationships, Joe advises City Council on policy matters, provides organizational leadership and works with City Council to develop and execute an organizational vision. He also directs all department heads, coordinates and directs the city budget and is responsible for implementing planning and infrastructure programs. Joe is the longest serving city manager in New Albany’s history.
