In a second blow to the upper management of Barrow County’s government in as many weeks, the recently hired public works director has quit. Lynn Smarr announced her decision in a Sept. 12 letter to county manager Jock Connell, who only nine days earlier submitted his resignation. Connell’s last day is Oct. 18. Smarr’s is a week later on Oct. 25.
