Josh Greene – Public Works Director –
I have been a resident of Alleghany County my entire life. Before I came to work for Alleghany County I studied HVAC technology at Surry Community College. I worked for a local HVAC contractor for 8 years and obtained my Refrigerant (Freon) Certification. It is my pleasure to serve the citizens of Alleghany County.
