Following his 30-day leave of absence, Wayne County Board of Supervisors Chairman and Palmyra Town Supervisor Ken Miller is now on a ‘Family Medical Leave of Absence’ until April 12.
Following the Wednesday, March 9 incident where Wayne County Sheriff’s Office deputies found Miller unconscious on the floor from suspected alcohol intoxication, Miller was admitted to the hospital, according to Wayne Times. Wayne County and Town of Palmyra vehicles were towed from Miller’s residence.
It was after this incident that Miller decided to take a 30-day leave of absence from his position as Palmyra Town Supervisor. On Monday, March 14, he submitted a subsequent ‘Family Medical Leave of Absence’ to run until April 12. Deputy Supervisor Jim Welch is acting Palmyra Town Supervisor in Miller’s absence.
Miller reportedly tried to attend the Board of Supervisor’s meeting on Thursday, March 17, where he was told by County Administrator Rick House that his leave applies to the Chairman position as well. Miller reportedly drove off before the meeting started.
The March 9 incident is not Miller’s firs run-in with police. In April 2011, Miller was arrested near the Clifton Springs Thruway service area for Driving While Intoxicated with a blood alcohol concentration of .23%.
