Public Relations Office Moves To Roby Center

The Town of Greeneville announces the relocation of its Public Relations (PR) office from Town Hall to the Roby Fitzgerald Adult Center.

     Effective March 1, PR Manager Amy Rose will work from the lower level of Roby Center in a newly remodeled office adjacent to the rear entrance of the historic former school building.

    The move is designed to free up office space at Town Hall for the new position of Assistant to the City Administrator, which is being filled by Cathy Osborne.

     The new PR office recently underwent a complete remodeling by maintenance employees of the Greeneville Parks & Recreation Department.

     The Town estimates a cost savings of $8,000 by completing the work in house, rather than hiring outside contractors to complete the work.

     The project included repair to damaged flooring, new paint, and installation of new light fixtures and window blinds.

     Decades ago, the new PR office was a second grade classroom at Roby, Greeneville’s first public school dating back to 1894.

     Rose will keep the same job duties, which include writing press releases, shooting photos and video, overseeing the Town’s website and social media, coordinating the annual Citizens Academy, and planning the community’s 4th of July and New Year’s Eve celebrations.

     Her contact information also remains the same: 423-783-2860 or     

     The Roby Center’s address is 203 N. College St., across the street from Town Hall.

     The PR office hours are 8 a.m to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
