CARTERET COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) - Carteret County will soon be looking for a new Economic Development Director.

The county says Don Kirkman is retiring on June 30. County officials say he has worked with the county for more than three years and has played a big part in vitality, expanding the local economy and getting grants to expand business there.

During his time with the county, Kirkman applied and received a broadband grant to develop a county-wide digital inclusion plan, helped in job creation and recruited more businesses to the area.

Kirkman says his retirement comes at a time when the county is facing a “bright economic future.”

Kirkman’s retirement was announced at Wednesday night’s Board of Commissioners meeting.
