Brooks 'best qualified' to return as Evermore CID director



STONE MOUNTAIN — Eleven months after Jim Brooks’ job as the director of the Evermore Community Improvement District brought the group into chaos, Brooks is slated to be named director once again.

A year ago, a divided board could not decide if Brooks’ contract would be extended. For three months, four board members skipped meetings and the stalemate only ended with the unexpected death of board member Forrest Adair.

Eleven months after Brooks’ contract expired, Chairman Chip Adair, who replaced his father, is expected to call for a special meeting to name Brooks as executive director.

In a press release, the board, which governs the quasi-governmental organization along U.S. Highway 78, said Brooks “is the candidate best qualified and is the person whom the Evermore CID intends to have fill that position.”
