Clarkston, GA — The Clarkston City Manager Robin Gomez will be leaving his position effective September 17.  The announcement was made during the Sept. 7 City Council meeting.

Director of Planning and Development Shawanna Qawiy will be the interim city manager, pending her review of a contract with the city.

In addition, City Clerk Tracy Ashby is retiring and the city hopes to hire a new clerk in time to supervise municipal elections in November. As an alternative, City Attorney Stephen Quinn suggested asking the DeKalb Board of Elections to provide a supervisor for the elections.
