Recreation Director Scalera resigns

Hiring freeze also lifted by commission

Recreation Director John Scalera resigned during a called meeting Tuesday afternoon of the Fannin County Board of Commissioners.

Commission Chairman Bill Simonds took the commissioners into a roughly 20-minute executive session to discuss “personnel” almost immediately after calling the meeting to order at 5 p.m. Scalera was called into the session about halfway through.

When the commissioners emerged, Simonds announced that Scalera had resigned. The commission unanimously accepted his resignation, then unanimously appointed Eddie O’Neal as his interim replacement.
