The search is on for a new top official in Swansboro as the town is combining the post of police and fire chief.
The town's longtime Police Chief, Ed Parrish, stepped down earlier this year. Less than a month later, the town's Fire Chief, Bob Penrod, handed in his resignation.
The town says they are looking for a strong leader and outstanding manager.
Interviews will take place in early July with a candidate being selected shortly thereafter.
