The City of Springfield has named Tim Smith as its new deputy city manager. He’ll report to City Manager Greg Burris.
Smith has served as Greene County administrator since 2008, and has been with the county since 1992. In a news release, the city says Smith scaled back to part-time hours and half pay last year in an effort to help the county deal with a budget shortfall.
Smith replaces Gen. Fred Marty, who died last November after a short battle with cancer. Marty had resigned from the position shortly before his death.
