Maurice Jones resigns as town manager in Chapel Hill
The man who served as Charlottesville’s City Manager from late 2010 to the middle of 2018 stepping down as the administrator of a town near the University of North Carolina’s main campus.
“It’s been an honor to serve the Town of Chapel Hill over the past four and a half years,” Maurice Jones in a press release that went out on Tuesday. “After an assessment of my personal priorities, I have made the difficult decision to resign from my position as town manager.”
Jones spent over four years in Chapel Hill. He became Charlottesville’s director of communications in 1999 and held that position for six years before leaving for a job related to the University of Virginia. Jones returned to the city as an assistant city manager in 2008 before being appointed as interim manager in 2010.
The Chapel Hill Town Council has already appointed an interim administrator.
Meanwhile, the city is still without a person overseeing its communications in a position now called Director of Communications and Public Engagement. The job is posted if you want to throw your hat in the ring.
