The Taylorsville City Council on Wednesday approved the appointment of the municipality’s engineer, John Taylor, as the city administrator.
Taylor also was appointed city treasurer, a job traditionally held by the city administrator. He replaces John Inch Morgan, who resigned this month to take a job as executive director of the Valley Emergency Communications Center (VECC).
Mayor Larry Johnson selected Taylor for the job and the council voted 5-0 to confirm the appointment.
Taylor already is a multi-tasker: In addition to serving as city engineer, he is director of the Community Service Division.
Taylorsville has a population of approximately 60,000.
