Santa Rosa County Administrator Tony Gomillion will retire in June after just over two years in the job, officials announced Tuesday.
A longtime county staffer, Gomillion was named County Administrator in November 2015, succeeding Hunter Walker, who retired after two decades in that position. Gomillion officially took over for Walker on January 4, 2016.
As County Administrator, Gomillion essentially works as the county’s hired CEO, supervising all county employees, recommending an annual budget, and working with county commissioners to execute their priorities. Before moving into the administrator’s job, Gomillion previously served as the county’s Public Services Director and Environmental Control Director.
In a statement, Gomillion said that he was “honored and privileged to have been part of the Santa Rosa County team for 33 years.”
County commissioners are expected to discuss the county administrator position at the board’s planning workshop next week.
