Cayce has hired Tracy Hegler as its new city manager.
Hegler is currently the director of community planning and development for Richland County.
The city voted on Oct. 17 to terminate its relationship with former city manager Brian Watkins without cause, according to a news release.
Watkins, former city manager of Milton, Fla., was named Cayce city manager in July.
“Tracy will bring a unique planning background and a management approach that will have her working closely with our neighborhoods, attending and promoting our many wonderful Cayce events, and meeting with our commissions and foundations — all to ensure the City’s focus on excellence and customer service,” Cayce Mayor Elise Partin said in the release. “She will be a great addition to our team and a great city manager for our citizens, our staff and our city.”
