J.W. Brannen named director; office's grand opening Tuesday
J.W. Brannen, who is retired after working 30 years in the Russell County appraisal office, has been named to the new post. Brannen previously served as the county's chief appraiser and later as the Downtown Redevelopment Authority chairman.
Brannen, who was chairman of the authority at the time, had refused to seat the additional council members. Council later rescinded a resolution to dissolve the authority and halted its attempt to add four of its member to the authority.
However, Brannen was not reappointed to another six-year term as the authority's chair. Although, at the time officials still said they wanted his input on future economic development.
During the meeting Wednesday, Wallace said Brannen was the right pick for the new post.
