HILLSVILLE — Travis Jackson is retiring as the area director for USDA Rural Development after 32 years to become the new Hillsville town manager.
Town council members unanimously approved hiring Jackson on Monday night, after a motion by Vice Mayor Ed Terry, taking only a few short minutes to fill the position that had been vacant since June.
Town officials quietly celebrated the circumstances that led to being able to hire Jackson.
