Henry County Administrator and Tim Hall told the Henry County Board of Supervisors Tuesday that he will retire in July.
Hall, who also serves as General Manager of the Public Service Authority (PSA), announced his retirement, effective July 1, during a Dec. 14 Henry County Board of Supervisors meeting.
“Public service is an honor, but it’s also a 24/7 task,” said Hall, who has served in the dual positions since August 2012.
The board unanimously voted to hire current Deputy County Administrator Dale Wagoner to fill Hall’s position upon his retirement.
“With a heavy heart, because Mr. Hall has done an outstanding job as our county administrator and has the full support of the board,” Vice Chairman Debra Buchanan, of the Horsepasture District, made a motion to accept Hall’s retirement.
“Serving the people of Henry County, the members of the board of supervisors, and the PSA Board of Directors has been the honor of a lifetime. Working with the elected and appointed bodies, and with the wonderful employees in both organizations, is something I’ll always cherish. No locality anywhere has better people, and our county and PSA staff are second to none too,” Hall said.
“My tank is close to empty right now,” he said, adding “I have no idea what will come next for me, but after a little downtime I look forward to finding out.”
Hall began his career in Henry County and the PSA as a Public Information Officer in December 1998, then served as the Deputy County Administrator/Assistant General Manager from March 2002 to August 2012. He previously worked as a newspaper and radio reporter for 10 years and worked in the Henry County school system for nearly eight years as a Public Information Officer, teacher and coach.
