County seeks new planning director

Stanly County Planning Director Michael Sandy resigned Feb. 11 after more than 20 years with the county.

“Michael resigned to pursue other interests,” County Manager Andy Lucas said.

Bob Remsburg, a county planner, has been named interim planning director.

“Bob’s a good guy. He will certainly do a good job in that role,” Lucas said.

A job posting for a planning and zoning director is up on the county’s website. The last date to apply is March 8.
