LEE CO., GA (WALB) - The search continues for a new Lee County Manager.
On Tuesday night, the board voted to allow Chairman Rick Muggridge to negotiate a contract with UGA's Carl Vinson Institute to help facilitate the search.
"We're going to discuss exactly what that might look like. We're going to review all the applications that we have. We're going to talk to Carl Vinson about expanding that search," said Lee County Chairman Rick Muggridge.
Commissioners were set to vote on a contract for current Albany Planning Director Paul Forgey Tuesday, but he withdrew his name.
Now county leaders have to restart the search for a manager.
