HB 1182, a new law introduced on 02/13/2008, has implemented a county manager in the state of Georgia. HB 1182 produced a county manager for Toombs County who is now required to obtain a surety bond from a licensed surety company able to do business in Toombs County. The surety bond will be an amount determined by the Toombs County Board of Commissioners; although it can not be less than $100,000. The surety bond is for the truthful performance of the manager’s responsibilities and would secure against dishonesty, malfeasance, misappropriation, or unlawful expenditure.
