Buena Vista has hired a new city manager. Jason L. Tyree, Buchanan town manager the past three years, will start his new job in Buena Vista on March 15.
“It’s an honor to be chosen by City Council to serve as the next city manager for Buena Vista,” said Tyree in a press release issued by the city. City Council offered Tyree the position after meeting in closed session Tuesday night.
“Buena Vista is an extraordinary community with so much to offer,” Tyree continued. “I know there are significant challenges to be addressed, but I look forward to working together with City Council, staff, and the entire community to make the quality of life the best possible for everyone that lives, works and visits here.”
Tyree was born and raised in Amherst County. He has a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Liberty University and a master’s certificate in local government management from Virginia Tech.
Tyree will succeed Jay Scudder, Buena Vista’s city manager the past seven years.
