Richmond Co. commissioners suspend search for city administrator

LINCOLN COUNTY, GA (WFXG) - Richmond County commissioners voted to suspend the search for a new city administrator during a special called meeting Wednesday afternoon.

Commissioner Bill Lockett said the body is unlikely to vote for a replacement until the new commission is in place.

The commissioners were to pick between Janice Jackson, Oscar Rodriguez and Steve Layson to replace Fred Russell who was fired from the position last December.

Tameka Allen and Steve Cassell will continue as the interim city administrator and interim deputy city administrator until the position has been filled.
