Changes in the City of Archer
Now it's official: the city of Archer has a new manager.
A reception was held at city hall today to thank outgoing interim city manager Ruth Henderson and welcome incoming permanent city manager John Glanzer.
Glanzer, a former mayor of Newberry, says he sees Archer as a diamond in the rough. While he listed a sewer system as the city's top priority overall, he said he plans on starting with changes that can be made quickly, like an improved recreation program.
A new city manager isn't the only change in Archer.
Residents recently elected two new city commissioners. They replaced two commissioners who resigned mid-term.
Change is nothing new in Archer-- their new city manager is their seventh in just the past five years. But residents are hopeful this round of changes brings results.
