On Hand Would Like to Welcome our Newest Board Member, Mike Wetz
Mike Wetz is the newest face to the On Hand Development Corporation Board Of Directors. Mike was selected by the On Hand Board on Thursday, August 7 at the On Hand Annual Meeting. Mike is taking the seat of Bryan Breitling who served on the board for the past eleven years.
The On Hand Board of Directors selected Mike because of his business knowledge, his work ethic, and his positive attitude. Mike is the General Manager for Kessler’s here in Miller. He moved to Miller in 2018 when Kessler’s opened. He brought with him his wife Janet, and daughters; Madison (18), Taylor (16), and Autumn (6). When he isn’t working, Mike enjoys attending his daughter activities, riding his motorcycle, and attending the Miller Speedway Races.
On Hand Development was created in 1987 by a group of citizens to help keep the Hand County area vital and growing. We have been "on hand" and working toward that goal. The mission of On Hand Development Corporation is to maintain and assist in the expansion of existing businesses and support the growth of new businesses while striving to improve the economy of the Miller area.
The On Hand Board consist of 11 board members throughout the county. Those board members include: Cooper Bebo (Professional) , Natalie Bertsch (School Board) , Brian Bonebright (C&C Membership), Mike Wetz (C&C Membership) , Sarah DeHaii (Professional) , Brian Jones (C&C Membership), Mike Mentzer (Finance), Laine Warkenthien (Finance), Luke Wernsmann (Governmental), Jason Wilhelm (Professional), and Joe Zeller (Governmental) . According to the On Hand By-Laws, the board must consist of: six at large directors, two finance directors, and three governmental directors. Three of the professional directors are voted on at the Miller Civic and Commerce and On Hand Development Annual Meeting. The remaining Professional spots are selected within the Board of Directors. The Governmental spots are to be filled within the Miller City Council, The Hand County Commissioners, and the Miller School Board. The positions are selected by those respective organizations’ governing bodies appointed to the board. The On Hand Board meets monthly and has a number of other committees that meet when needed.
