Russ Madison, currently serving as the city’s Revenue and Technology Director, will become the city’s Finance Director. He will be responsible for managing the revenue and accounting divisions of the city’s Administrative Services Department, but will still be “continuing his responsibilities with technology,” the city announced.
“I am glad that we have internal talent who are able to step-up and assist the organization in making a transition,” City Manager Peggy Merriss said in a press release. “I am confident that Russ and Meredith will do an excellent job.”
The city provided additional information about Madison and Roark:
