    Brownsburg Town Council appointed Grant Kleinhenz as the new Town Manager at its meeting Thursday evening. Kleinhenz began his tenure with the Town as the Assistant Town Manager in April 2011, and has served as acting Town Manager since February. 

    Kleinhenz has 15 years experience in public service, including several municipal management positions. 

    Prior to joining the Town of Brownsburg administration in April 2011, Kleinhenz was the City Manager for the City of Centralia, Illinois. He also served as the Humboldt, Iowa, City Administrator in 2003-04 and was the Town of Fishers, Indiana, Assistant Town Manager from 1999 to 2003. 

    “Grant has proven himself as the best choice for the Town now and into the future,” Town Council President Dwayne Sawyer said. “He has evaluated the way we do things and has great ideas for improvements and efficiencies. He knows what Brownsburg needs, and the Council has every confidence that he’ll perform well beyond our expectations. 

    “I am pleased that the Town Council has the confidence that I’m the right person for the job,” Kleinhenz said. “This is an exciting time to be a part of Brownsburg’s future and I look forward to the challenge of making a great community even better. 

    My priorities will be to focus on building our infrastructure, namely State Road 267 and the Ronald Reagan Parkway, plan for future growth with our utilities, focus on economic development and creating a more business-friendly Town, being more accountable to our stakeholders by using performance measures and strategic planning, and continuing our commitment to government transparency and communication.” When asked if what had been on his mind for that last 10 weeks as interim Town Manager, Kleinhenz told XRB “It has been difficult in many ways but I feel we definatly have a great town council and staff to move forward for the next 10 or 20 years. We will see how it goes.”

He is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma’s Economic Development Institute.
