Hamilton named sole finalist for Stephens County Administrator position

Stephens County has announced the sole finalist for the Stephens County Administrator position.

On Tuesday, Current County Administrator Phyllis Ayers announced that Christian Hamilton has been selected as the sole candidate for the position.

Hamilton currently works as the Main Street Manager for Main Street Toccoa.

As WNEG News previously reported, Ayers has not retired nor resigned; but plans to leave her job as County Administrator sometime in 2023.

Ayers says they wanted to find someone as soon as possible so that she can provide training for the new employee.

The county started accepting applications for the position in July.

As of this report, Ayers has not announced when her last day with the county will be.

State Law mandates Stephens County Government must hold a 14-day public comment period prior to taking official action.

Once the 14 day waiting period has past, Hamilton is expected to be officially hired as the new county administrator of Stephens County.
