The Barrow County Board of Commissioners on May 28 appointed the county’s former planning director to the key post of director of economic and community development. Guy Herring starts work June 3. It will be the fourth time that he has worked in the county’s planning department since graduating from college in 2000. The county hired him right out of college in June 2000 as a senior planner, but he left after 10 months. He returned as the senior planner in November 2003 and stayed six months. Then he returned in April 2005 as the director of planning and zoning but left that post weeks after Danny Yearwood began his four-year term as BOC chairman in early 2009. Herring’s new salary is $92,000. That is about $22,000 or 31 percent more than he was earning at the time of his 2009 resignation.
