Bay Village hires new community services director

Leslie Selig, Bay Village's new director of community services

The City of Bay Village has hired Leslie Selig as its new director of community services, replacing Debbie Bock who left in July after accepting a position as head of Rocky River's senior center. Ann Orin served as the department's interim director until Selig's hiring.

Selig will bring her expertise in working with the elderly to her new position. She owned a senior home care business for the past five years, focused on keeping seniors safe and independent in their homes as long as possible.

Her commitment to helping the elderly is apparent. "I wanted to stay in the senior care field because I have a love of senior citizens, and an appreciation for this group of people. I've had it since I was a little kid, from my own family."

Selig, 57, and her husband live in Tremont and have two grown daughters. Although she has only been in the city for a short time – her first day on the job was Sept. 25 – she said she was eager to get started and meet the people in the community.

"Bay is a lovely, lovely city. I look forward to meeting folks that walk in the door."
