Floyd Town Manager Lance Terpenny is retiring from his job at the end of the year and the Town Council hosted a going away party Thursday evening after the final council meeting of the month and year.
Terpenny, who took over the town manager position after a long tenure in the same position in Christiansburg, says he is going to do other things, including spending more time on his custom-built Harley-Davidson motorcycles.
Terpenny left his job in Christiansburg — Virginia’s largest incorporated town — after battles with the council there and moved to Floyd, among the smallest town’s in the Old Dominion with a manager form of government.
Floyd Mayor Will Griffin said the town will miss Terpenny. The town has selected town clerk and treasurer Kayla Cox as interim manager.
