FRANKFORT, Ky. (Feb. 16, 2017) — Donna L. McNeil has been named executive director of the Kentucky Infrastructure Authority (KIA).

McNeil served as compliance specialist with the Kentucky Rural Water Association (KRWA) in Bowling Green. There she served as chair of the Drinking Water Infrastructure Sustainability Committee and as proxy to KRWA executive director for Drinking Water Advisory Council and Wastewater Advisory Council.

McNeil formerly served as environmental control branch manager for the Department of Environmental Protection.

KIA is responsible for funding in Kentucky communities that do not have basic water, sewer, or solid waste facilities along with other costly infrastructure needs. Founded in 1988, KIA provides the mechanism for construction of local public works that provide a necessary function to public water, health and safety.
