Thurmond’s office has denied the allegations.
“Mr. Towler is a disgruntled employee that has made a series of slanderous, baseless accusation against county leadership that are not grounded in fact,” said LaKeitha Carlos, the CEO’s chief of staff.
DeKalb officials also released a statement acknowledging Towler’s resignation.
“Mr. Scott Towler’s resignation as director of Watershed Management for DeKalb County has been accepted by Zach Williams, the county’s Chief Operating Officer, effective March 16, 2018. A search will be conducted immediately for a new director of Watershed Management,” the statement said.
