He hits for power and average. He steals bases. He plays five different positions. He is versatile, reliable and clutch.Zobrist plays five positions, Davoll plays many positions for Apopka as well.If The City of Apopka were a baseball team, Ronald “Jay” Davoll would be its Ben Zobrist.Robert Sargent, the Public Information Officer for the City of Apopka, recognizes Davoll’s versatility and his value to the City.“Jay contributes so much to the success of the City of Apopka as both public services director and city engineer. With his additional experience in community development, he provides valuable insight into a wide variety of city services.”On October 28th, Davoll celebrated his 20-year anniversary as an employee at The City of Apopka. And like Zobrist, he has played many positions. Duvall began as a City Engineer.  In 2009, he was appointed Community Development Director.  In 2015, he was appointed Public Services Director, which is his current position.Davoll seems to be the resident expert on many matters in Apopka. When the Florida Department of Environmental Protection fined the City for improperly discharging treated effluent from the City’s wastewater treatment plant, he worked with the FDEP and expertly explained the City’s case and got the fine dropped. When there were parking issues and questions asked at the Parking Ordinance Committee’s meetings, Duvall was there to clarify. When there was a traffic issue with the proposed location of Tractor Supply, Davoll was there with a solution. Need a voice of reason at the Budget Workshop meetings? Davoll is your man.Mayor Joe Kilsheimer also sees his value to the City of Apopka.“Jay Davoll is one of those die-hard Apopka residents who does it all for his city,” said Kilsheimer at the City Council meeting Wednesday as he recognized Davoll’s 20-year career at the City. “I don’t know how we would do it without him.” Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Please enter your comment!
