GREENSBORO TO BEGIN PUMPING FROM RANDLEMAN RESERVOIR THIS SUMMER
The city of Greensboro will begin pumping water out of the Randleman Reservoir in the late summer, Water Resources Director Allan Williams said in a recent statement relayed to members of city council. Williams said weather caused delays for a contractor responsible for Greensboro transmission main, but that it should be done in May, ahead of the completion of the water plant. The Piedmont Triad Regional Water Authority, which oversees the multi-jurisdictional project, is on track to start operations around June, Williams added.
SCOTT NAMED ASSISTANT CITY MANAGER FOR ECO- NOMIC DEVELOPMENT
Andy Scott has been named the assistant city manager of economic development by Greensboro City Manager Rashad Young. Scott has served in the role as an interim since March 2009, in the wake of the firing of City Manager Mitchell Johnson, when Deputy City Manager Bob Morgan was drafted to temporarily fill the city’s top spot. Scott will receive a salary of $121,000. Previously, he headed the Greensboro Housing and Community Development Department, beginning in 1993. In Scott’s stead, the city announced that Dan Curry will continue to serve as interim director of housing and community development. Scott started his career with the city as the special assistant to the city manager for affordable housing in 1989. His new portfolio includes economic development and support services for private businesses. “I am truly honored to have the opportunity to serve my community in this important capacity,” Scott said in a formal statement. “As our city council and city manager identify priorities for growth in our community, it will be important that we have a focused strategy to take advantage of the manager resources in our community.”
