AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - The search for a new Americus police chief will be impacted by a shift in the city's form of government.
As of Wednesday, Steve Kennedy will be the city manager.
Kennedy was hired as the Chief Administrative officer in April.
The General Assembly approved a change in the city charter to move to a city-manager form of government.
That goes into effect July 1st.
The city manager will have all hiring and firing power moving forward as opposed to the mayor and council.
