HANCOCK -- The Town of Hancock recently hired a part-time marketing director, Mayor Daniel A. Murphy announced at Wednesday's Hancock Town Council meeting.
T.R. Weaver will serve as the town's economic development and promotions specialist.
Weaver's hiring was the result of work done by a town committee looking into the revitalization of the town.
"We needed to hire a pro to help us with the marketing of the Town of Hancock," Murphy said.
Weaver, who lived in Hagerstown until moving to Berkeley County, W.Va., six years ago, said he hopes he can help attract more businesses and possibly some light manufacturing firms to Hancock.
"We want to promote what we have here," Weaver said of Hancock. "We want to bring some new faces and businesses to Hancock."
