Curry County Road Department Superintendent Danny Davis resigned from his position Friday, according to County Manager Lance Pyle.

Davis, 45, has worked for the county for 14 years, Pyle said.

Davis said it was time for a change.

“I’m ready to be Danny Davis, not the road superintendent all the time. Everywhere I go I’m the road superintendent and I’d like to be me for a while,” Davis said

Road Department Foreman Dennis Fury was named the interim superintendent, Pyle said. The county will accept applications for the position until June 6, he said.

Pyle said Road Department Secretary Anita Wilmath also resigned in April.
