The Hoschton City Council on Monday approved the hiring of Jacqueline Crouse as the new city administrator at a pay rate of $45,000 after meeting in closed session for about 30 minutes.
Crouse will start in approximately two weeks during the first week in May.
She takes the place of former city clerk Ali Merk, who worked her last day at the city last week.
David Poteet made the motion to hire Crouse and Jim Higginbottom seconded. The vote was unanimous.
