Washington’s new city manager reports to work July 1.

The Washington City Council appointed Brian Alligood to the post during its meeting Monday. Currently, Alligood is county manager of Granville County.

“I am excited about the appointment of Brian to the city manager position with the City of Washington. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience that will continue to move our organization and our community forward,” Mayor Archie Jennings said.

Alligood’s appointment came after the council emerged from a closed session to discuss a personnel issue.

Alligood has been county manager in Granville County since 2006. Currently, he oversees a county budget of more than $50 million and more than 250 full-time employees. Previously, Alligood served as town manager for Boiling Springs and deputy county manager in Granville County. He also worked for the N.C. Department of Transportation and Western Carolina University Medical Service.

Alligood has a B.S. degree in civil engineering from N.C. State University, a B.S. degree in emergency medical care from Western Carolina University and a master’s degree in public administration from N.C. State University.

Alligood also worked for Martin-McGill, a private company that provides a variety of management consulting, project management, public planning and financial services to entities throughout the southeast United States.
