Laketran Board Announces Trustee Reappointments

The Laketran (Lake County, OH) board recently swore in three reappointed trustees. Board president Brian J. Falkowski, along with Lane H. Sheets and Kim Stenger, will serve three-year terms.

The swearing in took place after the Lake County Commissioners approved resolutions to reappoint all three members of the nine-member Board of Trustees.

Brian J. Falkowski

Falkowski is the Chief Operating Officer of Singerman, Mills, Desberg & Kauntz CO, L.P.A. and has served the Laketran board since 2011. During his tenure, he’s led the transit agency through a financial recovery plan, launched two alternative-fuel fleet transitions including operating Ohio’s first battery-operated electric bus, expanded services to Tyler Boulevard, improved passenger amenities with the construction of two indoor transit centers, and successfully passed two sales tax referendums.

Lane H. Sheets

Sheets, the former owner and president of Diversified Business Systems, brings 40 years of IT and engineering expertise to the agency and will be completing his third term on the board.

Kim Stenger

Stenger’s reappointment begins her first full term with the agency. Stenger was first appointed in July 2022 to fill a vacant seat. Stenger is a legal researcher of the Lake County Prosecutor’s Office, past board member for the Lake County Society for Rehabilitation and a lifelong advocate for people with disabilities.

The Laketran Board of Trustees are responsible for the general oversight of the Lake County public transportation system, including the annual budget and fare structure. Trustees serve the agency voluntarily.
