City Manager Ron Smith has announced the retirement of Assistant City Manager Lynn Smyth, effective November 30, 2018. 

Hired in 1986 as an accounting clerk, Smyth has moved through the ranks, working in the Finance and Personnel Departments.  She was named Assistant City Manager of Policy and Administration in 2008 and served as the Interim City Manager for several months earlier this year following the retirement of City Manager Larry Pressley.

“I have truly enjoyed my time with the City,” said Smyth.  “I have had the privilege of serving a great community for 32 years while working alongside a group of amazing and dedicated coworkers, now friends.”

Smith had high praise for his assistant. “The City has been very fortunate to have had Lynn as a part of the team for all these years.  She is a gifted administrator with a natural ability to assess people and situations properly so that issues are resolved quickly and effectively,” said Smith.  “I have appreciated her counsel and assistance while I adjusted to my new position,” adding that Smyth’s departure “will be quite a hole to fill”.
