YORK COUNTY — The York County Board of Supervisors officially removed the interim tag and appointed Mark Bellamy County Administrator to manage and oversee the day-to-day operations of the county at its meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 20.

“Mark has worked for York County for over 20 years — first as a division manager, then a department director, and most recently, as Deputy County Administrator,” said Board Chairman Stephen Roane. “His knowledge of our community and organization will benefit our citizens by improving services and maintaining our strong and sound financial position. The Board and I are delighted to have Mark at the helm.”

Bellamy took over as Interim York County Administrator following Neil Morgan’s retirement at the end of 2023.

“I appreciate the faith the Board of Supervisors has in me,” stated Bellamy. “I look forward to continuing to work with the Board and our excellent staff in furthering the community and the Board’s goals.”

Bellamy holds a Master’s of Business Administration from Averett University and a Bachelor’s degree in Business from Virginia Wesleyan University. In 2016, he graduated from the University of Virginia’s Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service Senior Executive Institute, and is a past-president of the Grafton Kiwanis Club, the county noted.

Originally from Missouri, Mark and his wife, Robin, a lifelong Hampton Roads resident, have lived on the Peninsula for the last 40 years, the last 13 of which have been in York County. They have two children and three grandchildren.
