Milton To Hire New City Manager Next Week


The Milton City Council has scheduled a meeting for Monday to approve a city manager.
The city has only advertised for one candidate, Billy Preston Beckett of Peachtree City.

Beckett, a 30-year veteran of government administration, has served as Fayette County administrator, Riverdale city manager. He also served as a manager in Raleigh County, W.Va.; Franklin County, Va.; and Collier County in southwest Florida.
Beckett joined Fayette County in 1985, and served for 15 years —eons in the world of county administration.

Then, he was Riverdale city manager from 2001 to 2004.
Since then he has worked as executive director of the Coosa Valley Regional Development Center, and as city manager of Safety Harbor in Florida.

Milton has been without a permanent city manager since August when Aaron Bovos resigned under fire over missing a deadline to collect about $900,000 in taxes. Since then, Public Safety Director Chris Lagerbloom has been acting city manager.
