The Palmyra Town Board will meet in executive session Thursday to discuss the case of Town Supervisor Ken Miller.
The Finger Lakes Times reports Miller is on paid family leave through April 12 since he was found apparently intoxicated at his home on March 9 after failing to show up for a board meeting. Acting Supervisor Jim Welch said the board accepted Miller’s letter requesting leave at its last meeting. More information is expected to emerge this week about Miller’s actions on March 9. He is believed to have driven a town vehicle from his home to the Town Hall earlier that day. Welch says he has seen no evidence that Miller was intoxicated at that time.
There has been no word from law enforcement on whether any blood tests were performed on Miller, who was taken to a hospital after being found at his home. Miller has a history of incidents related to alcohol use. He was barred from using a county vehicle in 2020 after a witness said he appeared intoxicated.
Welch hopes to present some information to the public following the executive session. Thursday’s meeting starts at 7 p.m.
