The City Council has accepted the resignation of City Manager James Fisher effective March 1, says Mayor Eric Barna.
“We have accepted the resignation of the City Manager,” he said. “The City of Murphy is now making plans for the transition. Mr. Fisher has done great things and accomplished much for Murphy. We’re thankful for his service and wish him well in his future endeavors.”
Fisher served as Murphy City Manager for eight years and saw the City through periods of commercial growth, economic development and an expansion of parks and trails among other accomplishments.
The City Council will initiate an immediate search for his replacement. No other staff changes are anticipated.
