A resignation at the Lenoir City Utilities Board has left a
manager's position vacant.
Greg Jones resigned from his position as manger of
water/wastewater Jan. 16 after a meeting with LCUB manager
Shannon Littleton, Littleton said. "He left on good terms and
from my understanding he's already employed elsewhere," he said.
Jones decided, Littleton said, it was probably best for him to
vacate or resign his position. "In turn his position was
eliminated at LCUB," Littleton said.
The position itself will not be refilled. There had been
previous discussion about eliminating the position, but there is
not really a reason for it now, Littleton said.
"For the most part, we're not going to fill the
position at this point, obviously for the savings to the rate
payers and we're going to just divide up work internally for a
while and we do have some consulting engineers who are helping
out, but were just not going to fill that position at this
point," he said. "We'll miss him here at LCUB. I'll miss him
personally and I wish him the best," Littleton said.
