The Harnett County Board of Commissioners has appointed former Central Carolina Community College (CCCC) Harnett County Provost Bill Tyson as the County’s new Tax Administrator. Commissioners approved a two-year appointment and Tyson was sworn in as Tax Administrator during the Board’s September 3 meeting.
Harnett County Manager Paula Stewart said she was excited to welcome Tyson to the Harnett County team.
“Bill brings a wealth of knowledge and a high level of professionalism to the County, and I am looking forward to working with him in this role,” said Stewart.
One of Tyson’s top priorities as Tax Administrator will be overseeing Harnett County’s 2022 property reappraisal. The County has hired Vincent Valuations to conduct a full remeasure and reappraisal of the County, which has not been done since 2003. The process is already underway with staff from Vincent Valuations currently assessing properties across the County.
Tyson said he is looking forward to his new role in Harnett County.
“I appreciate the vote of confidence shown by the Board of Commissioners and the County Manager in my recent appointment as Tax Administrator for Harnett County,” he said. “I look forward to serving the citizens of Harnett County along with the dedicated and hardworking staff in the Tax Office.”
Tyson has more than 25 years of experience in administration and management, most recently as Harnett County Provost for CCCC. He has also been an Associate Dean, Director, Coordinator, and Instructor during his 34-year career. His management style focuses on continuous improvement, effective communication within and across departments, and excellent customer service.
Tyson has a Bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree from East Carolina University, with further study at North Carolina State University. He resides in Angier and is a member of the Lillington Presbyterian Church.
