Sep. 15—Former Manhattan assistant city manager Dennis Marstall has a new job.

Marshall next month will begin work as the county administrator for Lancaster County in South Carolina.

The county is on the border with North Carolina and is part of the greater Charlotte area.

As The Mercury previously reported, Marstall recently resigned as assistant city manager in Manhattan.

He started the job on Jan. 25, 2019, and city officials notified the commission of the resignation on Aug. 27.

According to a release from the Lancaster County government, the county council hired Marshall after a nationwide search.

Before going to Manhattan, Marshall had worked for the city of Charlotte in various offices. He is a graduate of Manhattan High and K-State.

"Coming back to the Greater Charlotte region, and in particular, Lancaster County, feels like coming home," Marshall said in the release. "I'm excited to work with the forward-thinking county council and dynamic county staff to build on the county's rich past and prepare for its vibrant future."

Marstall begins work on Oct. 18 and will receive a base salary of $165,000, plus a vehicle allowance of $500 per month. In Manhattan in 2020, he was making $123,084, according to city records.
