Athens-Clarke County Assistant Manager for Administrative and Community Services Richard White has resigned, effective February 14, 2014, to accept the position of Town Manager of Elon, NC.
"I will miss the quality of work Richard has provided as a valuable member of our management team," said Athens-Clarke County Manager Alan Reddish. "However, I recognize this is an excellent opportunity for his professional development and am very supportive of his acceptance of this new challenge."
White has served as an Assistant Manager with the Athens-Clarke County Unified Government since January 2006. Advertising for the position will begin the week of January 27 with the expectation that a new Assistant Manager will be selected no later than April.
Blaine Williams currently serves as the Assistant Manager for Transportation and Community Development. He and Manager Reddish will assume the major duties created by the vacancy until the position is filled.
