Sylvester city council ousts WG&L leader

January 6, 2005

Sylvester - The long time superintendent of Sylvester Water, Gas, and Light says he was forced to resign. 74 year-old Charles Jones worked for the city of Sylvester for more than 54 years. Jones says Thursday afternoon the City Manager and Mayor came to his office and told him that the city council voted to ask for his resignation and that today would be his last day.

Jones says they wouldn't tell him why they wanted him out. Two police officers escorted Jones around the building as he cleaned out his desk.

City manager Danny Lucas wouldn't comment on the situation until after talking with utility employees in a meeting Thursday afternoon.

Jones says he has no ill feelings towards to city leaders, but he'll miss what he calls "his life" working at Water, Gas, and Light.
