Just before 2009-2010 budget work sessions begin for Galax, the city's Director of Finance, Nikki Shank, has decided to resign and take a position as assistant county administrator in Carroll County.
Shank said she put in her notice Feb. 5 and her last day will be Feb. 27.
“The opportunity came up, and I'm looking forward to going to Carroll,” she said. “It's sad to be leaving the city .”
Before becoming the city's director of finance in August 2004, Shank worked seven years as assistant finance director for the Town of Pulaski.
