The Hall County Board of Commissioners is poised to take action on these items at its meeting Thursday, Feb. 24.

A vote is set on an employment agreement for Wesley Geddings as finance director.

Geddings would come to Hall from Oconee County, where he worked for the last nine years and served as finance director at Oconee County.

He replaces Dena Bosten, who resigned without notice in October 2021. He would be paid an annual salary of $145,000, according to the agreement.

“Wesley’s experience and leadership will only enhance the capabilities of the strong finance team currently in place, and he will be a tremendous asset to the entire organization,” County Administrator Jock Connell said in a statement last week.

Geddings would begin on March 1.

“I look forward to working with Hall County’s Financial Services staff to provide the highest possible level of responsible stewardship to the citizens of Hall County,” Geddings has said.

The developer of a proposed 399-home development in East Hall is asking for the matter to be heard by commissioners on March 24.

The proposal was previously tabled by the commission.

The development would be on 347 mostly wooded acres off Gillsville Highway/Ga. 323.

Forestar (USA) Real Estate Group Inc. is seeking to build 107 townhomes and 292 single-family detached homes at 2955 Gillsville Highway, near Joe Parker Road.
