According to Upson County Manager Jim Wheeless, Upson County Animal Control Director Smart Web resigned his post on March 19, 2014, effective immediately. He noted Web left his position to finish pursuing his degree in Criminal Justice and law enforcement. Web has been a police officer at Gordon State College for several years.
Currently, there are still two full-time employees handling the field operations in the Animal Control department and Wheeless stated there are volunteers helping with the shelter as well. However, the county will be doing an analysis of the department before deciding what route to go when it comes to filling the position.
