      Assistant City Manager accepts new job in Florida

      After spending only a few months on the job, Kirksville Assistant City Manager Angie Whisnant is headed back to her home state of Florida.

      Whisnant has been the Assistant City Manager since early November, and recently announced that she has accepted a position in Putnam County, Fla. Whisnant is being replaced by Ashley Young, who served as Director of Communications with Complete Family Medicine. 47 individuals applied for the position of Assistant City Manager, but Young's involvement in the Kirksville community made him stand out from the rest.

      "He's involved with Kirksville Habitat for Humanity and some other things, so he's already involved in the community and so when we decided to, you know when we found out we were going to have a vacancy again, we thought we would concentrate on someone local that's involved with the community and already loves the community," said Pat Meredith, Human Resources Director for the City of Kirksville.

      Young will begin work as the new Assistant City Manager of Kirksville on February 24th.
