MILTON, Ga. — Stacey Inglis wears many hats as Milton’s assistant city manager. She oversees all departments of Milton’s government and oversees the daily activities in finance, human resources, communications and information technology.
“Because I’m able to work with all of our departments, I’m in a unique position to see how all of the moving pieces affect one another and how we can continue to improve our performance,” Inglis said.
Inglis has been with the city since its incorporation. She spent six years as Milton’s finance manager and director. In 2013, she took over the role of assistant city manager.
“I’ve been here since the beginning, and I often brag a little about how fun it has been to help grow a city,” Inglis said. “It has been remarkable to see Milton evolve from a suburb of Alpharetta to having our own unique identity. Our citizens take pride in where they live, and I like to think I’ve played a part in that.”
She said those in opposition to Milton incorporating, or those who feared breaking away from Alpharetta, are now happy to call Milton, with its unique identity, home.
The most important aspect of her position, Inglis said, is to help city staff outperform the expectations of the residents.
“One of the things I love most about Milton is that our residents challenge us to function differently than a traditional city government,” she said. “We are always striving to identify creative methods and processes to introduce efficiencies that result in outperforming citizen expectation.”
In addition to working with each department, Inglis works collaboratively with fellow assistant city manager Carter Lucas and city manager Steve Krokoff.
“We all work together to the best possible resolution,” Inglis said.
Before coming to Milton, Inglis worked as finance director for Pooler, Rockdale and Jonesboro. Originally from Savannah, Inglis moved to the metro Atlanta area with her husband, who also works in city government.
Inglis is a graduate of Georgia Southern, having earned her bachelor’s in finance and a Master’s Degree in business administration.
Inglis said she enjoys spending time with family, reading and making things with her hands, including working on a quilt.
She is also an active member at the Milton-Windward Rotary Club and will soon take over as the president of the club.
