Statesville City Manager Ron Smith announced Thursday the appointment of Deputy Fire Chief Andy Weatherman as interim Statesville fire chief.
Chief Spencer Lee announced his resignation earlier this month. Lee’s last day is Friday. “I am certain that Chief Weatherman will do a great job of holding the reins for the city while we are in the process of filling the position of chief,” said Smith. Weatherman has been with the department more than 25 years and has been a deputy chief for 20 months. “He has had a role in the operations of the department and certainly understands what is needed as an administrator.”
