Salisbury has a new assistant city administrator.

Terrence Arrington has been on the job two weeks and lists a long list of tasks that he has gotten from the Mayor and interim city administrator.

And the Salisbury Daily Times reports that on that list is revitalizing the downtown area.

Other tasks include revising the city’s emergency management plan and changing how the city applies for grants.

The 30 year-old native of Charlotte, North Carolina, replaces Lore’ Chambers who has sued Mayor Jim Ireton and the city Council after being fired following a noisy public exchange at city hall with Ireton.

She is seeking $750-thousand in damages from the encounter.   

The city received around 50 applications for the opening which was narrowed down to three candidates.
