Denton town administrator Terry Fearins will retire by October 2010. While no official announcement has been made by the Town of Denton, the town council discussed at its October 5 meeting that Fearins will retire from her position by October 1, 2010, which would mark her 30th year with the town. The council held a brief discussion on how it would conduct a search for Fearins’ replacement, moving that discussion to its October 19 work session. The council will likely draw up requirements and responsibilities for the job, then advertise for the position. At the October 5 meeting, the council said it would like Fearins’ replacement hired and on the job well ahead of Fearins’ retirement date.
