Melody Himes appointed interim operations manager
At its regular meeting last night, the Elkins council entered executive session under the personnel exemption to discuss a personnel matter in the Operations Department.
After exiting executive session, Mayor Jerry Marco announced that no actions had been taken nor decisions made in executive session.
Councilor Rob Chenoweth, chair of the Personnel Committee, announced that Bob Pingley, the city’s operations manager, had submitted a letter of resignation earlier this week. Councilor Chenoweth moved that Melody Himes, the city’s operations assistant, be appointed interim operations manager. The motion carried.
The mayor announced plans to form a hiring committee.
