Westminster’s veteran city administrator, David Smith, is getting close to retirement, but he’s not ready to name a date. In the meantime, the city is advertising for an assistant administrator—an individual who potentially could move into Smith’s job. Westminster has placed an assistant administrator’s ad on the South Carolina Municipal Association website. And, so far, that ad has produced 21 applications. Smith joined Westminster nearly 10 years ago, as utilities director. He later assumed the dual jobs of utilities director and city administrator.
