MIAMI COUNTY, Ohio (WDTN) – Oversight of Miami County Children’s Services will be shifted from the Miami County Children’s Services Board to the Department of Job and Family Services effective July 17.
Our friends at the Troy Daily News report that the merger was proposed following the firing of June Cannon, the organization’s previous director, last month. She is being investigated for allegations of fraud and theft.
The Miami County Board of Children’s Services voted 4-1 on April 11 to approve the merger.
Commissioner Greg Simmons, a former Children’s Services employee, said that the board of commissioners do not expect to see much of a change in employees’ positions at Children’s Services.
“We want you to continue the excellent work with our children. You make Miami County a better, safer place for the children that you serve,” Simmons said. Simmons also thanked Carol McDonald for being the acting director during this transition.
