After a 40-minute closed-door session Tuesday night, the Barrow County Board of Commissioners voted to accept the resignation of Lyn Clement, the longtime director of the Department of License & Permits.
There was no public discussion of the matter, and no one explained why it was necessary for the board to vote on Clement’s retirement.
The motion by Commissioner Larry Joe Wilburn simply stated that the board of commissioners “accept Lyn Clement’s retirement as discussed in executive session.”
The vote was unanimous, but Eva Elder was absent from the meeting.
With the public vote following an executive session to discuss personnel matters, it appears that the retirement may be a settlement.
