WISE — Shannon Scott's tenure as Wise County administrator came to an end on Friday, Wise County Attorney Karen Mullins announced in a Saturday press release.

"The Wise County Board of Supervisors on Friday ... after much delberation and discussion determined to dissolve and restructure the County Triad of Administration," reads the press release.

"The Board exercised its authority and has terminated the duties and responsbilities of Shannon Scott with Wise County effective today, February 16, 2018. David Cox has been appointed Interim County Administrator until further action of the Board."

Cox is the county's finance administrator. The “triad” refers to the shared responsibilities of county government management between the county administrator, finance chief and county attorney positions.

Scott served as county administrator for several years following a stretch as an assistant administrator, the latter position eliminated when the triad system was adopted by the board.
