The Indiana Association of County Commissioners (IACC) has selected Hamilton County Director of Administration Dan Stevens as its “2020 Outstanding Supportive County Administrator of the Year.”
Stevens has been a servant in many capacities with Hamilton County including Hamilton County Sheriff for eight years and Director of Administration for the Hamilton County Board of Commissioners for the past 14 years.
“As we all know, this year has been extraordinarily challenging,” a spokesperson for the IACC said. “In the face of the pandemic, Stevens has been instrumental in helping Hamilton County Commissioners, elected officials, department heads, and employees provide governmental services and support functions while keeping staff and the public safe.”
Stevens has and continues to administer large scale capital projects on behalf of the county such as the expansion of the Hamilton County Jail, the recently completed county solar project, and the site master planning of the corrections complex as well as the county administrative offices.
“It is difficult to put into words how valuable Dan's work and dedication has been to the citizens of Hamilton County,” says Commissioner Steve Dillinger, a long-time friend of Stevens’. ”His service has been instrumental in guiding and managing the growth and success of the county and his attention to detail has gained the respect of all.”
Stevens is an active member and leader within many civic groups including the Scottish Rite, Murat Shrine, Federal Bureau of Investigation National Academy Association, and the Noblesville Noon Kiwanis. He has also been a member of the Noblesville Elks Club, Noblesville Moose, Hamilton County F.O.P. Lodge 103, Riverview Hospital Foundation Board, Chaucie's Place, and the Hamilton County Correction Advisory Board. Steven’s is also a lifetime member of the Indiana Sheriff's Association.
