Greene County Administrator Resigns, BOS Stays Quiet
At Tuesday night's Greene County Board of Supervisors meeting, the board was tight-lipped about the recent resignation of the county administrator, who was noticeably absent from the meeting.
NBC29 confirmed Tuesday, Greene County Administrator Barry Clark resigned this week in an unexpected move. Clark is currently on administrative leave, and county supervisors are keeping the details of that resignation to themselves
His absence was not mentioned once at Tuesday night's meeting. Clark reportedly submitted a resignation letter, but the details of that letter are not being made public.
His last day on the job is officially November 30, but until then he is on administrative leave. Supervisors will not comment on whether that is a paid or unpaid leave.
As of Tuesday night, it is unclear why he is leaving.
Greene County Supervisor Jim Frydl stated following Tuesday's meeting, "As a board, we don't discuss personnel matters, regardless of the situation." That was his answer to a number of questions NBC29 asked about this situation.
What is known is, Greene County Deputy County Administrator Tracy Morris will take Clark's place for the time being. Clark has been the county administrator for six years. Before that he was the Scottsville Town Manager. Clark took over after long-time county administrator Julius Morris retired.
