Fernandina Beach Commissioners were still in the process of finalizing their City Manager search committee when they also had to determine who would be the city’s next Interim City Manager.
The man appointed to serve the initial 90-day term, former Police Chief Mark Foxworth, will be at the end of that term on May 24. Commissioners terminated the employment of then-City Manager Dale Martin in February after a falling out.
“The discussion was, when this was put on the agenda, there was no Interim City Manager,” Commissioner Chip Ross said at the Commissioners’ meeting this week.
“Since that time, my understanding is that the City Engineer, Mr. (Charlie) George, has accepted the (position of) Interim City Manager until the end of the contract of the current Interim City Manager. So, the situation has resolved itself.”
Commissioner Darron Ayscue agreed that it was his understanding they settled on George taking over.
