Snellville City Clerk and Chief Financial Officer takes Clerk job with Dunwoody

Snellville’s city clerk has resigned her post to take the same position in the fledgling city of Dunwoody. Government veteran Sharon Lowery will become the first city clerk for Georgia’s newest municipality, which officially started up Dec. 1. Lowery began her Snellville career in the police department and has been city clerk for “a good chunk” of her 25 years with the city, said Snellville city manager Russell Treadway.

“I think it’s great news for her. It’s sad news for us,” Treadway said of Lowery, who is also the city’s chief financial officer.

“She also has a lot of institional memory and community memory,” he said. “We’ll miss what she brings to the city on a daily basis … and her passion for making us better.”

Lowery, whose last day with Snellville is Jan. 15, isn’t the only city official from Gwinnett County attracted to the rookie city in DeKalb County. Warren Hutmacher resigned as Norcross city manager in November to become Dunwoody’s first city manager.
