Interim Town Manager Announcement for the Town of Boone

 

During the March 9th, 2022 Town Council Meeting, Amy Davis, the Finance Director for the
Town of Boone, was named interim Town Manager for the Town of Boone. Amy Davis will be
the Town’s first female Town Manager and the transition is effective immediately. John Ward
will continue to work with the Town until his departure on April 1st, and will work closely with
Amy in order to ensure a smooth transition.

Amy has been the Finance Director for the Town of Boone since 2004 and has worked with the
town for almost 22 years. “My plan for the upcoming months is to work closely with department
directors in order to facilitate as smooth of a transition as possible. In the short term, developing
the FY 2022-2023 budget will be a priority.” Amy Davis stated. The Town of Boone Town
Council recently hosted a budget retreat March 7th and 8th to learn more about the budget
process and start highlighting Town Council priorities. The fiscal year for the town begins in
June.

“Amy’s dedication to the Town of Boone and her gift of working well with all town staff is
evident in her daily actions. Amy is an excellent choice to serve as interim Town Manager and
I’m excited for her as she starts this new challenge.” commented John Ward.

“This is an exciting time for the Town of Boone! Amy Davis has the full faith and confidence of
the council and staff. We feel at ease that Ms. Davis will lead the town through a smooth
transition. Not only has she been a vital part of how well our town has functioned through her
tenure thus far; she will serve as the first woman town manager in Boone history! So appropriate
for our celebration and recognition of Women’s History month and our efforts to make new
strides in our 150th year! Amy, thank you so much for your willingness to serve and
congratulations!” Mayor Futrelle stated.
