AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - The Americus city manager says the search for a new police chief continues.

Brian Carney resigned a month ago after only six-months on the job, so Major Herman Lamar is serving as interim chief.

City Manager Steve Kennedy says the consultants the city hired to find Carney are leading the new search free.

"Part of their deal was if the person they placed did not stay for more than two years then they would end up, they would do the search again for free," said Kennedy.

The city is also looking for a public works director.
