Browning to continue as town administrator

Town Administrator Bob Browning will keep his job for at least two more years following last week’s meeting of the Jonesborough Board of Mayor and Aldermen.
During the Dec. 10 meeting, BMA members unanimously voted to enter into another two-year agreement with Browning to continue his role with Tennessee’s oldest town.
“Your dedication to this town…over the decades you have been here is one of the greatest things we could ever have happen in the town of Jonesborough,” Mayor Kelly Wolfe told Browning at the meeting. “You are a role model for our employees.”
Browning said he was honored to continue his work as town administrator.
“Anybody who works with me knows how much I love this town,” he said.
Alderman Chuck Vest made the motion to continue Browning’s employment with the town.
Vice Mayor Terry Countermine seconded the motion, which passed unanimously. Alderman Homer G’Fellers was absent.
As part of the agreement Browning earns an annual base salary of $72,165.
Meanwhile, Countermine, who was named the first-ever vice mayor in the Town of Jonesborough following the creation of the position last year, has been reappointed to the role.
During the Dec. 10 meeting of the BMA, Countermine, now in his 13th year on the board, agreed to continue serving as vice mayor.
Vest made the motion to reappoint Countermine to the position. It was seconded by Alderman Adam Dickson. With G’Fellers absent, Countermine’s favorable vote made his reappointment unanimous.
