At Monday night's Franklin Board of Aldermen meeting, Town Manager Warren Cabe announced that Macon County employee Justin Setzer would be serving as the new Town Planner of Franklin.
“I'm honored to receive this opportunity,” said Setzer following the announcement. “I'm looking forward to working with the administration, the town board and the citizens of Franklin.”
Setzer, a Franklin native, will officially begin his duties on Jan. 29. In the meantime, he will finish up his stint with Macon County. The Franklin High School and Haywood Technical College alumnus began working with the county in 2006 in the Geographical Information Systems (GIS) Department as a GIS Analyst. He also serves as Lieutenant for the Franklin Fire Department and spent some time with the Town of Franklin Planning Board.
