A statement from the city was released stating Meyer was retiring next week, but there was no signature on the release. AllOnGeorgia reached out to the mayor to confirm the sudden announcement. Mayor Hendrix was asked if Chief Meyer’s retirement was due to the situation that occurred with Cindy Lee.

” Maybe. He is tired and he is ready to go. His health is not the best in shape and he said he is tired of dealing with the public …and kicking in doors…and doing law…and he said he wants to retire…and we [City Council] will probably make that official probably next Thursday,” said Mayor Hendrix.

According to the statement from the city, Cheif Meyer will retire on  Friday, Feb. 9th, 2018.
