Former Mayor Now Danville's City Manager

May 27, 2011

In a decision that drew both groans and applause, Danville City Commission voted to hire longtime mayor John W.D. Bowling as interim city manager Thursday night. Bowling, who served three terms as Danville mayor, will be paid $6,000 a month beginning June 1 when the employment contract goes into effect. Bridgette Milby, acting interim city manager since shortly after Paul Stansbury was suspended, will return to her position as head of codes enforcement.
