Police chief may be tapped to be Guyton interim manager

Guyton City Council may have delayed its search for a city manager, but council members could be ready to appoint an interim to that position.

Council members are expected to discuss at their meeting Tuesday night making current police chief Randy Alexander the interim city manager for six months. Under the proposal, Alexander would serve as city manager for two days a week and on an as-needed basis.

Guyton council members had narrowed their choices to three people in early December — former Forsyth city administrator Deron King, Effingham Chamber director of marketing and events Linda McDaniel and then-Rincon Police Chief David Schofield.

Council members also are expected to take up a job description for the interim city manager position.

Guyton council members, in conjunction with the Ogeechee-Canochee Riverkeeper, will hold a public meeting Monday at 7 p.m. at the Guyton Civic Center to discuss the city’s planned wastewater treatment facility.
