Walnut Cove Town Manager Bobby Miller announced his resignation at a recent commissioners meeting, and said it would be effective Aug. 11.
“I’m leaving to take another opportunity,” he said. “This has been a great experience and I appreciate the board allowing me to serve.”
Miller replaced Monty Stevens in Sept. of 2015 after a 25 year career with the N.C State Highway Patrol. As a lifelong resident of Walnut Cove, his desire was to see the town prosper.
“I think Walnut Cove is continuing to move in the right direction,” he said.
During Miller’s time, the town received a matched grant through Appalachian Regional Commission for free Wi-Fi throughout the downtown area and he helped craft two budgets with no tax increase.
“Financially, I believe the town is in good shape,” he said.
Kim Greenwood will be serving as interim manager until the position is filled.
