Blowing Rock To Hire Interim Town Manager (2018-10-26 15:22:49)

The Blowing Rock Town Council unanimously decided to hire an interim town manager while it reviews candidates for the permanent position.

The decision came after current Blowing Rock Town Manager Ed Evans announced his resignation. His last day is November 30th.

The Blowing Rocket reports it was advised to use an interim town manager because hiring for the permanent position is a multi-step process that could take up to six months or longer.

According to the report, it was decided Blowing Rock is too big of a town to continue without a manager for that much time.

The Blowing Rock Town Council will hold a closed session meeting on October 29th to review potential candidates for interim town manager.
