Goodpasture has been employed by the city for 24 years, including the last 19 in the human resources department.

Since 2007, she has served as the assistant director of human resources.

She replaces Anita Breen, who retired after being charged with having possession of two stolen debit cards.

Breen's retirement was effective Friday.

Goodpasture was promoted Monday.

“We are excited that Lisa has accepted the director's position,” Assistant City Manager Steve Commons said. “She is well known and respected within our organization and has developed her skills through the years to prepare for this opportunity. Lisa's knowledge of the city and our people will serve her well in leading our human resources department.”

Her annual salary is set at $95,051.
