This came across the wires not too long ago from the Catoosa County News. Apparently Fort Oglethorpe City Manager Ron Goulart turned in his resignation notice today. A special meeting of the city council was called today (Friday) at 3p to accept the resignation and appoint an interim city manager (there were actually two separate closed meetings since they were dealing with personnel matters). The person that they chose, Harold Silcox, fired both police chief David Eubanks and public works director Jeff Long:
The reason city employees fired Jeff Long was because he, as a county commissioner, agreed to annex a piece of property into the county from the city in anticipation of the legislature approving such a measure. Eubanks was not given a reason. “I’m not happy about it and my wife isn’t going to be happy about it,” Eubanks said.
We’ll see what transpires over the next few days.
