Months of searching and speculation ended Wednesday as Corbin city leaders officially hired a new city manager - a Greenville, SC native with experience as an administrator for cities and counties in both Georgia and South Carolina. Sixty-three-year-old Michael Phillips was named as the next City Manager by Corbin's Board of Commissioners by unanimous vote during a special meeting. He succeeds former City Manger Bill Ed Cannon who resigned in August after serving in the position for 12 years.
