McPherson City Commissioners gave their approval to the hiring of Terry Jones as the city's new Community Development Director during Monday's regular meeting.
Jones will replace Tom Stinemetze, who announced his intent to retire at the end of the year this past summer.
“Works for the City of Marion currently as the Director of Development, Director of Tourism and Zoning Administration there,” McPherson City Administrator Nick Gregory said of Jones' qualifications. “Graduated K-State in 2010.”
Jones has been with the City of Marion since 2014.
“We're excited to have Terry aboard,” Gregory said. “He'll take as much time as he can to learn from Tom [Stinemetze] the ropes of planning and zoning. The good news is he has done some planning and zoning.”
It is anticipated that Jones will start Nov. 16.
