SILER CITY—Several changes for Siler City staff were announced within the last week which include positions of top leadership.

Town Manager

Siler City’s town manager Bryan Thompson announced two weeks ago that he has accepted a position with Chatham County as its new Assistant Manager. Thompson’s last day will be July 15, a date chosen to ensure that the town’s budget process was complete prior to his departure. The town later announced that the town’s Finance Director Roy Lynch would be taking over the role in an interim capacity following Thompson’s departure. In addition to finance experience, Lynch also previously was town manager for Liberty before accepting the Finance Director job with Siler City.

Chief of Police

Thompson announced at the Siler City Board of Commissioners’ meeting on Monday that the search for a permanent Chief of Police is nearing its conclusion. He expected an announcement would be made either Friday or Monday of next week. Thompson also noted that Interim Chief Jeanne Miller had requested that last Monday would be her last day. Thompson noted that Miller had initially been installed as interim for a time period that was estimated to be four months. However, because several offers to Police Chief candidates fell through, the process has extended for nearly a year. The board expressed its gratitude for Miller’s work.

Code Enforcement Officer

At the board meeting on Monday, Thompson announced that Sergio Borrayo, the town’s code enforcement officer, will be resigning to take a position in Chatham County as an inspector, a position he had been working toward for some time, according to Thompson. The town had already been considering how the inspections department would move forward following the retirement of its long-time inspector. To cover those responsibilities, the town contracted with the inspections department at Chatham County. The town is working toward a similar situation to cover the responsibilities of Borrayo though slightly differently. The town is working with a potential private contractor from Greensboro to negotiate services while the town determines how best to move forward. Once the negotiations are complete, the full details of the proposal will return to the Board of Commissioners for their consideration.
