Irmo administrator receives positive evaluation

By Al Dozier

Irmo Town Administrator Bob Brown received a positive evaluation from the Irmo Town Council during a closed-door executive session Monday, according to town officials.

Irmo Mayor Barry Walker Sr. declined comment on the evaluation, noting it was an “executive session” that doesn’t require public disclosure.

Town officials confirmed the evaluation grades were above average on several different categories.

His salary on July 1 of this year is listed at $125,400.

Brown has served in the post since 2011.

Brown retired as a Major from the U.S. Army in 1996 after 21 years of service. He began with the Town of Irmo as the Special Project Coordinator in 1997 and was instrumental in: the development, design and construction of both the Lake Murray and Broad River Road/ I-26 Interchanges; the new police facility; the three town parks; and the Crepe Myrtle Beautification project along the railroad tracks adjacent to Woodrow Street.
