After an extensive nationwide search, the Town of Boone has officially named Amy Davis as the new Town Manager of Boone, during the September 7th Special Meeting of the Boone Town Council.
“Thank you for the opportunity and confidence you have shown in me. We have the best staff in town, period. Thank you for giving me this time during transition, and for allowing me to go forward,” stated Amy Davis, newly appointed Town Manager.
