The City Council voted Thursday to fill one of the city’s highest administrative positions with a familiar face.  By unanimous consent, the council approved a recommendation from City Manager Eldon Jobe to appoint longtime employee Jeff Davis to fill the vacant position of Assistant City Manager.

Davis has served as superintendent of the city’s electric department for seven years and has been a city employee for 16 years. He will replace Mary Jo Collins, who retired more than a year ago, but has continued to work with the city as a consultant.

 “Over the course of his tenure as Electric Superintendent, Jeff has displayed an exceptional grasp of his supervisory role as well as his level-headed approach to problems and challenges as they arise,” Jobe told the council. “His overall understanding of the city departments and operations is outstanding. In addition, he has a keen technological mind, including, but not limited to, the city’s computer programs.”
