DECATUR CO., GA (WALB) - A new county administrator has been appointed for Decatur County.
Wednesday was Alan Thomas's first day on the job.
He's lived in Decatur County since he was a teenager and said he looks forward to helping the county advance.
As he settles in to the new position, he's focusing on learning more about county projects in progress.
"So far, it's for me to come up to speed and become more knowledgeable about what's going on with the county," said Thomas. "And develop from there a priority list of what needs to be addressed first."
Thomas said finalizing the county's budget will be one of his top priorities.
