The Summerville City Council voted to approve a new City Manager at Monday night’s meeting of the council.  The board approved Russell E. Thompson, who is currently working for the City of Milledgeville as the new City Manager.  The new city manager is currently seeking a home in Chattooga County and plans to move to the area soon with his wife, Jody. 

Thompson stated : “My wife and I love the area and we think it is a beautiful part of the state. The people we met when we went there were very kind and generous,” Thompson said Wednesday. “It seems like a great community to move to; a great community to serve and a great community to raise a family.”
