The McDonough council promoted Steve Morgan to be the new city administrator. Morgan previously served a lengthy tenure as Fire Chief before assuming Director of Facilities and Asset Management last year.
The McDonough council unanimously approved the promotion at their February 20 council meeting. The city administrator position had been vacant more than a year.
City Administrator Steve Morgan
As city administrator, Steve Morgan will now lead the day-to-day operations for the city of McDonough. Some of his major duties include supervision of department heads, preparation of the annual budget and representing the city to state and county officials.
Morgan first moved to McDonough in 1990 to open a local toy store. He started with the city as a volunteer police officer and fire fighter. When the toy business closed in 2004, he became the first full-time fire / building inspector for the city. He would eventually become Fire Chief starting in 2008. He held this position until February 2022. The city council tapped Morgan to oversee the city’s facilities at this time.
MHF News would like to extend our Congratulations on a well-deserved promotion. I look forward to continue working with Chief Morgan in your new role.
