By Sharna Johnson: CNJ staff writer

Curry County Commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday to renew the county manager’s contract through 2011, adding a year to his existing contract.

Manager Lance Pyle’s contract renewal does not include a pay raise.

The vote came following an executive session at the end of the scheduled meeting.

“We thought Lance had done an excellent job this first year of his contract, so we gave him an excellent evaluation,” Chairman Frank Blackburn said.
