A new law was enacted concerning a new public official in Jefferson County, Georgia. The new law, which is titled HB 358, implements a county manager for Jefferson County. The county manager must acquire a “non-recourse bond” from a solvent surety licensed that is able to do business in the Jefferson County in an amount no less than $50,000, conditioned on the truthful performance of the individuals’ responsibilities. The surety bond protects against dishonesty, malfeasance, misappropriations or unlawful corruption
