Miller has been offered the position and accepted the job yesterday, according to Tryon Mayor Alan Peoples. The town received 16 applications for the town manager position.

Tryon has been searching for a manager since the resignation of former manager Jim Fatland last December. The town hired Bob Shepherd as interim manager following Fatland&squo;s resignation.
