Phil Rhoads is retiring effective Oct. 31 as the City of Greer  Building and Development Standards director.

Phil Rhoads, Greer Building and Development Standards director, is retiring Oct. 31.

Rhoads submitted his retirement notice earlier this month and city council addressed the pending vacancy during executive session tonight.

Rhoads declined comment until City Administrator Ed Driggers makes the announcement official.

Council ended its marathon meeting tonight at 11:05 p.m. Executive session was held to address three personnel matters, an economic development and one contractual topic.

“We addressed (Rhoads) retirement and are evaluating the structure of the department and where we want to go,” Driggers said. “We will begin advertising for the job by the end of the week.” Driggers said the vacancy of a long-term employee affords the city an opportunity to explore options within its operations.

Rhoads was responsible for enforcement of all applicable codes and ordinances of the city for both the construction and mobile home industries and engineering practices. Planning, zoning, building and codes, engineering and storm water are among the functions of the building and development director.

The department, located on the first floor of Greer City Hall, serves a variety of functions for the City of Greer including planning, zoning, building and codes, engineering, and storm water.
