HIGH POINT N.C. — High Point City Manager Strib Boynton has announced plans to retire on July 1, according to the High Point Enterprise.

Boynton informed the council of his decision during a budget briefing session on Thursday morning, according to the paper.

Boynton reportedly turns 65 next month and has spent 42 years in public service. He has served as city manager since 1998.

“I have family and other opportunities and responsibilities needing my time and attention,” he said, according to the paper.

    And other opportunities. It’s not about family it’s about more money elsewhere. He could have retired at 30 years of service if it was about family. It’s hard to give up money and power once you have a taste of it. Politics will be his next step.

    • Chucky

      There was a woman who worked for the city who made some accusations about him but I am not sure on the specifics. I think that she was dismissed and there were no criminal charges filed.

      • Reasonable Voice

        Not keeping up with the news? The claim against Mr. Boynton was recently settled through the EEOC, implying that the City gave her a confidential monetary settlement. The complainant is still employed by the City. And Mr. Boynton is conveniently leaving. That should be good news to High Pointers. The czar will be gone soon! Ever wonder why progress in High Point has been non-existent over the past 20 years? Consistently poor leadership – from City Manager to City Council to all levels of city government.

  • Concerned Citizen

    Amen!! So very glad to see him go!! He has never had the CHP’s best interest at heart. It was all about image to him.

  • Really?

    I would not blame him one bit if he really left for more money and a better opportunity. Dealing with High Point’s joke of a mayor and city council must have been exhausting. None in power for the city are looking out for the city.
