Fuquay-Varina town manager resigns

— Town Manager Jon Barlow has resigned after two years with the town.

Fuquay-Varina Board of Commissioners voted to accepted his resignation Monday after about 30 minutes in closed session.

Barlow turned in a letter of resignation Friday and it is effective immediately, Mayor John Byrne said.

Barlow did not disclose a reason for leaving, town attorney Mark Cumalander said, only that he was planning to pursue other endeavors.

Barlow is a former Raleigh police officer and came to Fuquay-Varina in April 2011 after serving as the town manager in Roxboro, near the Virginia border. He also managed the towns of Nashville, N.C., population 4,300, and Lake Waccamaw, a town of about 1,400 people.

"We're a growing community, and we wanted the experience that someone of his caliber would have," Byrne said after hiring Barlow, who beat out 79 other candidates for the position.

Andy Hedrick will serve as interim town manager. Hedrick served as Fuquay-Varina's town manager for six years before he retired in 2010.
