STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) -

Statesboro's new city manager hopes his experiences from around the country help this community now that he's here.

Randy Wetmore listened during his first council meeting and just his third day on the job. He's worked in Tennessee, Iowa, Oregon and elsewhere in cities smaller and larger than Statesboro.

He says the prospect of working in a university town helped draw him here, so did the city's leadership and staff and he likes the potential he sees so far.

“It feels like this place could do something great. At this stage in my career, that's what I want to do is something great. I want to help people get there,” said Wetmore.

He says Friday also gave him a look at how many of the city agencies work together in a potential emergency.

With a tropical storm now out of the way, he's looking forward to settling in and getting to work.
