Kenner leaves Mahoning County Engineer’s office

YOUNGSTOWN

Marilyn Kenner retires as chief deputy Mahoning County engineer Friday after 23 years in that position and a total of 32 years with the engineer’s office.

Kenner, who has managed day-to-day operations, said she and her boss, Engineer Richard Marsico, who retires at the end of this year, are leaving the office in good condition for the next county engineer, Patrick Ginetti.

“It will be in good fiscal condition,” Kenner said.

The new engineer will start with an abundance of salt following the mild winter of 2011-12 and with no need to negotiate a new Teamsters labor contract until 2014, and likely with just over a $1 million carryover from 2012 to 2013, Kenner said.

The office has 70 employees and an annual budget of about $12 million, and it is responsible for maintenance and snow and ice removal on nearly 500 miles of county roads.

What Kenner fails to tell you is that she and Mr. Marsico passed out huge raises up to 12% to the front office personnel. Mrs. Kenner was earning more than the elected county engineer at the time of her retirement all while driving a county vehicle in which she transported her children in. Unfortunately Mr. Ginetti will be stuck with all these overpaid employees in the front office. Secretaries making $27.00 an hour when can I apply? The front office personnel are not Union so please no comments about the overpaid Union workers.

Suggest removal:

First I agree with Josephine. 70 employees is about accurate but only 35 of those are union the rest are supervision and yes the NON UNION employees all got 12% raises plus bonuses.. Hell there are even supervisors with NO employees in there department..

what you also don't know she just gave her self another raise in July. I was also told she got a big check for sick and vacation after she changed the rules that non-union can get 100% of there sick leave up to 960 hr. it use to be 25 % for everyone who retired be for her.plus hr. of vacation. she made more then any elected county engineer in all 88 county's. and thats not the half of it.
