Bottoms Announces His Retirement

A familiar face in central Geneva County has decided to retire after nearly 30-years of dedicated service.

Jimmy Bottoms is the long-time public works director in Hartford.

Bottoms believes its time for someone else to take over the position.

In Hartford, the public works' director is responsible for overseeing the water, sewer, electric utility, and streets.

Bottoms says what he will miss most is the people, but he is ready to start a new chapter in life: retirement.

At this time, the city is advertising for a public works director.
