WEB: Robbins Fills Vacancy
The Robbins Town Board lost no time filling its ranks.
At a special meeting Monday, Commissioner Theron Bell nominated local attorney Frank Marley to fill the remainder of Buddy Robinson's unexpired term. Marley had received votes in the November election.
"He was the next highest vote-getter," Bell said. "I nominate Frank Marley."
With a second by Laura Brady, Marley was appointed.
Robinson, who was elected last year, also works for the town. He decided to resign from the board.
The commissioners are moving ahead with the town's search for its first town manager after changing the charter from a mayor/council to a manager/council form of government. Advertisements are going out for the manager position.
Robbins has a $1.6 million annual budget, and 17 full-time town employees. It will describe itself as "a rural town, with newly amended charter to council/manager form of government, located in the center of North Carolina."
