Nashville Town Manager Preston Mitchell sat in his last Town of Nashville Council Meeting on Tuesday night.
Mitchell will be leaving the town to serve as the Town Manager of Reidsville.
During his final report on Tuesday, Mitchell said he had enjoyed working the past decade with the board and the town.
Mitchell said he was fortunate to have served under two great mayors and a supportive town council. He added that he felt the town currently had a great group of department heads.
"I've been lucky to have two great mayors," Mitchell said. "We've had some great camaraderie."
Mitchell told council members leaving the town would be hard.
"It was very tough to make the decision to go," he said.
Council members said they would miss Mitchell and thanked him for his service.
Councilman Larry Taylor said Mitchell was the only manager he'd served under during his time on board and Mitchell had helped him learn the ropes.
"I've enjoying working with him," Taylor said.
Councilman Charles Taylor agreed. Charles said Mitchell was probably the reason he was sitting on the town council and he would miss him.
"It'll be some hard shoes to fill," he said.
Councilwoman Louise Hinton said the town had seen a successful 10 years. She wished Mitchell well in his next endeavor.
Mayor Donald Street presented Mitchell with a Resolution of Appreciation during the meeting on Tuesday. Street read the resolution, which recognized Mitchell's accomplishments. He presented Mitchell with a framed copy of the resolution.
The board went into closed session at the end of the meeting to reportedly discuss who would serve in the interim when Preston leaves this month. However, council members did not take action following the closed session.
Mayor Donald Street said an announcement was pending.
