The Town of Franklin will soon begin searching for a new manager. At last week’s retreat, the board of aldermen began discussions about seeking a new permanent manager to replace the current interim manager, Sam Greenwood, whose term is set to expire in April 2012.
The board decided to begin seeking a new manager no later than September. Board members also indicated that they would be most comfortable seeking a manager with experience in government in western North Carolina.
Greenwood is employed by the town for 1,000 hours per year and, according to his contract, is paid $68,270 annually with $10,000 contributed to his retirement plan and $500 provided monthly for travel.
