When the County Engineer position was posted for Dale County, Ariton native Matthew Murphy did not need a second thought before submitting his resume for consideration. Murphy, a lifelong resident of Dale County, received his Civil Engineering Degree from Auburn University in 2000. Four years later, he was licensed as a professional engineer.
Murphy began working with Barbour County as the Assistant County Engineer in 2000, accepting the position as Barbour County’s County Engineer in 2016.
