BUENA VISTA, Va. (WDBJ) - Buena Vista has announced it’s found a new city manager.

The office will be taken March 15 by Jason Tyree, who is the city manager of Buchanan right now.

The Buena Vista City Council unexpectedly didn’t renew the contract of Jay Scudder last January.

Scudder has been filling in as acting city manager in the meantime.

”It’s good that this was able to happen, and I’m really honored and privileged,” Tyree said. “But I know the area really well too, I know a lot of the back roads. I know a lot of the ins and outs. And I know some of the business owners already coming in.”

Tyree is originally from Amherst County.
