The Boiling Springs Town Council is acting on their commitment to a smooth and orderly transition between Town Managers. Boiling Springs is on the hunt for a new Town Manager after current manager Tom Hart announced he is leaving to serve as City Manager in Clinton, NC. To ensure the continuation of professional management of the town’s affairs, the Town Council authorized an agreement with Isothermal Planning and Development Commission (IPDC) for interim town management services. Through the agreement, IPDC Executive Director Scott Dadson will serve as Interim Town Manager. Mr. Dadson is well suited for the post with experience as a city manager in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. The Town will be also contracting with the IPDC to perform planning, zoning, and code enforcement for the community during the transition between Town Managers. Boiling Springs is proud to partner with the IPDC, a regional agency that provides technical assistance to its membership which consists of counties, cities, and towns including Boiling Springs.
With an Interim Town Manager in place, the Town Council is now pivoting to focus on recruiting and selecting the next Boiling Springs Town Manager. The job is being advertised and Mayor Bill Ellis, Councilman Daniel Thomas, and Councilman Pat Litton have formed a subcommittee to review and vet applicants. “We’ve been blessed with great Town Managers. We’re excited about the future and optimistic we are going to find a strong applicant who is a good fit for Boiling Springs,” said Mayor Ellis.
