LAVERGNE, TN (WSMV) -

The La Vergne Board of Mayor and Aldermen promoted Bruce Richardson to city administrator at its meeting on Tuesday night.

Richardson had been serving as interim city administrator since April 2012.

"[He] has been the interim city administrator for the past year and I have witnessed a very talented leader who has a lot of love for our city," said Mayor Senna Mosley in a news release. "He has served La Vergne with a great deal of integrity, strong moral character and brings to the city a new level of professionalism."

The city administrator is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the city, including financial, human resources and public safety oversight, as well as management of public works, water, sewer, parks and recreation, engineering and codes.

Richardson has been working for the city since June 1993.

"The city of La Vergne has been my work home for nearly 20 years," said Richardson in a news release. "I have seen the city triple in size and with the large growth here, there have been more infrastructure needs, public safety needs, and zoning and codes requirements, as well as additional services, programs and activities the city offers to its diverse population."
