Joshua Smith Leaving Hamilton to Lead Butler County Development Group

Hamilton City Manager Joshua Smith has been hired as chief executive officer for the Butler County Finance Authority, an economic development agency previously called the Butler County Port Authority.

Smith had announced late last year he was leaving the city manager’s job sometime in 2024. His new role with the Butler County group will begin after he assists in Hamilton’s transition to a new city manager, and the formation of the Hamilton Development Finance Agency, which he will also head.
