After serving the city of Richmond Hill for 15 years, city manager Mike Melton was relieved of his duties at Tuesday’s regularly scheduled city council meeting.
The motion passed 3-1, with newly sworn-in council members Jan Bass and John Fesperman voting in favor with Councilman Van Hunter to terminate Melton’s contract. Councilman Russ Carpenter cast the nay vote.
“I would like to state for the record that it has been my pleasure to serve the people of Richmond Hill the past 15 years,” Melton said. “I am very proud of my accomplishments during that time. But more importantly it has been my honor to work with and lead the city employees of Richmond Hill. Thank you. With that I will excuse myself.”
