Brownsburg this month hired a town manager who has experience with economic development.
Dale Cheatham, who starts work Jan. 4, was city manager of The Colony, Texas, a growing community of 40,000, for eight years. Before that, he spent four years as city manager of Watauga, Texas. He’s also worked with the cities of Dallas and Greenville, Texas.
This won’t be Cheatham’s first time living in the Indianapolis area. He was stationed at Fort Benjamin Harrison during his Army service.
Cheatham has a master’s degree in public administration from Northern Illinois University.
He will replace Jim Waggoner, who told the town council in April that he wished to resign at the end of the year. Waggoner, who wants to spend more time with family, will take a different job in town government, council President Gary Hood said.
