SOUTHPORT, NC (WECT) - The new city manager in Southport, Kerry McDuffie has announced that he will be taking on a bigger workload.
The Board of Alderman recently eliminated Public Services Director, Robert Tucker's position during the board's annual retreat last Saturday.
The move happened during a break from the all-day event, where virtually all aspects of city business were discussed.
McDuffie called the dismissal part of a re-organization of city departments.
Moving forward, employees who previously worked under Tucker would now report to McDuffie directly.
