Lyle Patterson, the city's director of building and zoning, is slated to take on additional responsibilities as the assistant city manager beginning in January, according to city officials.
The other two positions include Finance and Human Resources Director Leigh Mills and City Recorder Edie Glaser.
As the new finance and human resources director, Mills is responsible for overseeing the city’s finances, including the preparation and maintenance of the annual operating budget, monthly fund statements and other forms of financial documentation, according to the city. Mills previously served 10 years as the finance director for the Tennessee School Boards Association.
Glaser, the new city recorder, will oversee the processing, billing and collection of property taxes and stormwater fees as well as maintain official city records and provide assistance to other staff members and commissioners.
Prior to the hiring of Mills and Glaser, Aspen Collins served as the city's finance director and the assistant city manager; Charlotte Hunter was employed as the city recorder. Collins and Hunter have since been hired by the city of Forest Hills as the city manager and the executive assistant, respectively.
Patterson, who will retain his current position, will assume his additional responsibilities as assistant city manager effective Jan. 1. Mills and Glaser have already started in their new positions.
