Posted: Updated:
AMERICUS, GA (WALB) -

After more than thirty years of service, Americus Police Chief James Greene has been told he is no longer needed.

This decision comes after the department was studied for it's management organization.

The re-organization also eliminates the Assistant Police Chief position, currently held by Nelson Brown.

Americus Chief Administrative Officer Charlotte Cotton said this decision was not a shock to the Police Chief, it has been in the works for about a year.

"We are responsible to the citizens for their tax dollars that we spend and we are responsible to provide them with the most effective and efficient government we can and this is one way the council has found to do this," Charlotte Cotton, Americus Chief Administrative Officer.

The decision will not be official until the Council votes tomorrow at its regular meeting at 5:00 PM.
