Mayor Ketron Announces New County Facilities Director


Adam Dodd will assume the role of Facilities Director for Rutherford County on December 6, 2021, Mayor Bill Ketron announced this week.

Dodd will fill the vacancy caused by the upcoming retirement of long-time Director Ben Mankin.

Prior to being named director, Dodd worked in several roles within the County. He started his career as a detention officer for the Sheriff’s Office in February 2002 and spent two years there. In April 2005, he became a maintenance technician with the Facilities and Maintenance Department, and in July 2012, he was promoted to Maintenance Supervisor.

After that, Dodd worked as an appraiser for the Property Assessor’s Office until July 2019. Due to a Title II Federal mandate, the County initiated an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) audit for the entire county to ensure compliance with current ADA requirements.  As a result, the ADA Coordinator, Building Codes Director, County Engineer, and Planning Director needed assistance making sure all repairs were made to meet the standards.  On July 15, 2019, Adam became the first ADA and Safety Maintenance Tech for the County.

A long-time Eagleville resident, Dodd graduated from Eagleville High School.  He has multiple certifications to include:  OSHA Compliance and Workplace Safety, OSHA General Industry Certification, ADA National Network Basic Course, MicroMain Training, DPA Certification: TN Assessment Law, DPA Certification: TN Appraisal Fundamentals, professional development hours for HVAC through Trane, Back-flow Prevention Assemblies, Aerial Work Platform, and an authorized Work Crew Supervisor through the Rutherford County Work Center.  In addition to Adam’s work history and training, he has extensive background in carpentry and millwork and was instrumental in the completion of the new museum in the Historic Courthouse.

“I congratulate Adam on this new position,” said Ketron. “I am confident that he will serve in this role well and will continue to be a great asset to the County.”

Dodd is excited and humbled at the opportunity. “I look forward to serving and assisting County leadership and departments and working alongside a great team to do so.”
