County Manager Jack Horton has announced that Lori Hall has been selected as the new finance director for Macon County. Hall replaces Evelyn Southard, long time county finance director who retired at the end of October.

Before accepting the position with Macon County, Hall had served as finance director for the City of Kings Mountain beginning in 1996. Prior to that appointment, she worked as a clerk in accounting and collections for the city.
