Edwards agrees not to sue

Former Hinesville City Manager Billy Edwards will remain, at least on paper, a city employee until Sept. 12. This is the official date Edwards' resignation will become effective, according to the severance agreement received by the Coastal Courier through an open records request. Edwards also agreed not to sue the city. The agreement acknowledges that the long-time city manager "was not terminated for cause," and that his resignation will be noted in the city's personnel records as being voluntary.
