The Covington News - - LOCAL - BRYAN FAZIO bfazio@cov­

While So­cial Cir­cle seeks a more per­ma­nent re­place­ment for its city manager, it has turned to some­one ac­cus­tomed to mind­ing the store be­tween man­agers.

Ross Hub­bard has been brought on as So­cial Cir­cle’s city manager with a six­month con­tract re­cently.

Hub­bard will not only per­form the daily du­ties of run­ning the city, but will also be in charge of the search for a full-time city manager.

Hub­bard has pre­vi­ously served as city manager of Toc­coa, while the city was look­ing for its own full­time manager. He also did the same for Cor­nelia, and was also a long-term city manager in Cal­i­for­nia.

“He’s a good man,” So­cial Cir­cle Mayor Hal Dally said.

Hub­bard will serve as in­terim manager af­ter So­cial Cir­cle parted ways with Doug White in late Fe­bru­ary. White served 13 years as so­cial Cir­cle’s city manager, and has re­cently been hired with the Bobby Dodd In­sti­tute in At­lanta.
