The Virginia Department of Transportation announced Monday Randy Brown will assume the role of residency administrator for the Appomattox residency of VDOT on April 10.
Brown, a lifelong resident of Charlotte County, will serve as the primary VDOT official for the counties of Amherst, Appomattox, Campbell and Nelson counties and will oversee road maintenance and operations, land development, budgeting and business operations.
“I look forward to continuing to serve the citizens of the Appomattox Residency,” said Brown about his new role in a news release.
Brown, currently the assistant residency administrator for the Appomattox Residency, began his career with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) in 1987 as a construction inspector and was the residency’s first land use permits and subdivision specialist senior in 1990.
He broadened his construction, maintenance and administrative skills and experience in roles as residency contract administrator, project manager, district construction quality manager and maintenance operations manager, according to the release.
Don Austin, who has served as residency administrator in recent years and is retiring, said at the April 2 Amherst County Board of Supervisors meeting he enjoyed working with government staff and residents in Amherst. Supervisors wished him well in his upcoming retirement.
“You have always been a perfect gentleman,” board chairman Jimmy Ayers said to Austin.
