TERRELL CO., GA (WALB) -

Terrell County is looking to hire a new county manager. 

The Commission recently approved an ordinance to hire someone for the full-time position. 

They're looking for someone to manage the $8.5 million budget. 

The commissioners, who are all part time, initially handled that duty.

The county manager would oversee the department heads, excluding constitutional offices.   

County Commission Chairman Wilbur Gamble III explained he wasn't in favor of the decision, but will do whatever it takes to find a qualified candidate.

"We want somebody energetic that's going to go out there and try to first get an industry interested in coming but also put their eye on the budget. And maybe come up with some ways to get grants and that type thing to help the county," said Gamble. 

Terrell County Commissioners hope to hire a county manager by the start of 2018.

The starting salary could be in the $50,000 to $60,000 range.
