NIXA, Mo — Nixa’s new administrator received a warm welcome at a reception tonight.
Jimmy Liles was appointed unanimously last week by Nixa City Council to the job.
Liles has been serving as Nixa’s police chief since march of 2014 — and took over for interim director doug Colvin.
“It’s been a great event so far, a lot of the community has come out to say hi. It’s great to be able to meet the citizens in our community. Spend a little time getting to know them, introduce myself and see what the city can do for them. So it’s been a great event so far,” Liles said.
Liles says he’s excited to start working on the city’s budget, and working with the department heads to spend tax payer money responsibly.
