Burchik will be the authority’s “Main Street Manager,” according to the city’s release. He will assist with Lilburn’s ongoing downtown revitalization effort. The city joined the group Main Street America in 2017. The group works with small towns and cities to preserve historic character while promoting economic activity.

The Downtown Development Authority’s members are appointed by city council. Burchik’s position is a staff position, meaning the council did not appoint him.

Burchik’s now-vacant seat will be filled by an appointment for the remaining year of his term. The mayor, city council or both could make that appointment, the city said in a release.
