Citizens will soon have the opportunity to meet face to face with the city of Dawsonville's new manager.

Newly appointed City Manager David Headley on Monday announced plans to hold a citizens discussion workshop later this month.

"We're going to invite the public, city and county residents, to come and attend, to sit down with the city manager and have discussions on things that might be going on...and what they'd like to present and talk about," Headley said.

The meeting, which is open to everyone, will be held at 6 p.m. Jan. 20 in the Joe Lane Cox Room on the second floor of the Dawsonville Municipal Complex.

Headley has held the new position since mid-December.

A Forsyth County resident with more than 30 years of local government experience, Headley most recently served as Dawson County's director of public works before accepting the position with the city.

He also spent 22 years with Brevard County Government in various management positions and is a U.S. Marine Corps veteran.

"It will be my mission and goal in making a difference, not just a difference, but a measurable difference that will assist in the city's transition as we move to the future growth and development of the city," he said.
