Thunderbolt hires new town administrator

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - There's a new town administrator at Thunderbolt City Hall.

Council members voted Monday morning to hire Linton Smith for the position. Five council members made the decision at an open meeting at 7:30 a.m. to approve the matter.

"Right now, I don't see any immediate changes. I'm looking at identifying opportunities or having council or the citizens identify opportunities for me as I work for them, and then me being the one to facilitate," he said.

They decided to start early so that Smith could begin work Monday. Smith takes over for former administrator Bob Thomson who resigned in May.
