Tax office employee took issue with Glen Moore's management style

By Jessie Burchette
Salisbury Post
County Tax Collector Glen Moore is awaiting a decision by the Rowan County Board of Commissioners on his future.
Moore was placed on paid administrative leave on March 12, apparently on orders of the Board of Commissioners.
Commissioners and top county officials have been mum on what caused Moore to be put on leave.
But Moore’s attorney, Randy Reamer of Salisbury, said it resulted from a disgruntled employee who made a complaint.
Reamer said there is no allegation of wrongdoing. Instead, it’s about management style.
He indicated that a relatively new employee took issue with Moore’s style of management.
Reamer also noted that the tax office is often a stressful place. “Nobody is happy when they come in to pay taxes.”
He also pointed out that Moore hasn’t had an opportunity yet to respond to the allegations.
Commissioners held a closed personnel session at their Monday meeting but announced no action.
Moore, contacted at home by the Post, declined to comment, referring questions to his attorney.
Moore’s current contract as tax collector runs to January. His annual salary is $72,344.Moore was appointed as tax collector on Nov. 28, 1994. Prior to that, he was a bank manager and vice president.Moore is one of five county employees who work directly for the Board of Commissioners under state statutes.
Other employees of the Board of Commissioners are county manager, tax assessor, county attorney and clerk to the board.
Ken Deal, county director of administrative services, said he expects the issue will be resolved soon.
