Town manager resigns

Town Manager Randy Hemann has submitted his resignation to Mooresville’s board of commissioners.

Because of a clause in his employment contract requiring a 60-day notice, his resignation is effective Oct. 23. In what was a very public process, Hemann was recently selected as the new city manager for Oak Ridge, TN.

“This has been a very difficult decision, but I feel God is leading me in a new direction and toward a new challenge,” Hemann wrote in a letter to the board today. “It is especially difficult to leave Mooresville in the midst of such exciting times for our community.”

He wrote that he has received “great satisfaction” from “building a high performing and successful team at the Town and being able to complete a number of projects that impacted our citizens in a positive manner.”

“I am thankful for the awesome leadership team at the Town of Mooresville and front-line employees I was able to work with on a daily basis and will miss them all,” Hemann continued. 

“I am thankful to God for the opportunity and the blessings he has bestowed on me personally and on the community I have been privileged to serve. Thank you for being able to serve a Board that had the attitude of ‘if we are going to do it, we are going to do it right’. As a manager,” Hemann concluded, “that attitude allowed me to serve our citizens to the best of my ability. Thank you for the opportunity to serve.”
