Tift County -- Tift County now has a permanent county manager. 

The Board of Commissioners hired Jim Carter for the position.

Carter is currently the Special Projects Coordinator for Lowndes County. Thursday night, commissioners had a private meeting with Carter to discuss the terms of his contract.

County workers say the board made a good decision. 

"He has a lot of governmental experience, he knows how government runs, he will have a learning process to learn our local policies and procedures. He's coming at an interesting time, he'll have to jump on board with us as we work through the budget," says County Clerk Glynda Hemby.

Carter will start in a month.
