Greene County has a new acting administrator. Effective Monday, Chris Coulter will formally assume the title.

The Greene County Commission made the announcement Thursday. Since 2008, Coulter has served as Resource Management Department director. The department includes Planning & Zoning, Building Regulations, Stormwater/Environmental Services and Building Operations.

In a release, the Commission stated that Coulter’s annual salary will be $91,333.

Coulter holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science and history from Drury University and a Master’s degree in City and Regional Planning from Clemson University.  He is also professionally certified by the American Institute of Certified Planners. 

He replaces Tim Smith, who resigned last month to become Springfield’s deputy city manager.

The Greene County Commission has also announced the appointment of Kevin Barnes to fill Coulter’s vacancy beginning Monday. Barnes has served with the county since 2000 as stormwater engineer.
