BAINBRIDGE, Ga. (WTXL) — Changes are in the works for Bainbridge City Government. I'm AJ Douglas, your neighborhood reporter in Bainbridge where a long time city manager has decided to resign.

Thursday, city workers received notification that after 21 years, Chris Hobby has decided to resign from his position as city manager. Friday the City of Bainbridge went to Facebook to confirm the resignation.

The city released a statement that reads in part quote,

"The City respects his decision and expresses deep gratitude for his unwavering dedication and the considerable contributions he has made throughout his tenure."

I asked the city why Hobby resigned. They told me to reach out to him directly, so I stopped by his home. I was told he would not like to comment at this time.

Roy Oliver is currently assuming the role as acting city manager. Hobby's already left the city building but resignation won't be official until May 6.
