Richard Harmon, Columbia County’s longtime director of its Development Services Division, abruptly resigned this week, county officials said.
County Administrator Scott Johnson said Harmon resigned Tuesday. He will be on leave until Oct. 15, Johnson said.
“As a result of our restructuring of departments with an emphasis on how we deal with development, we’ve had a change in philosophy on how we approached those issues,” Johnson said. “We had a meeting Tuesday with Richard on several items and (his resignation) was a result of that meeting.”
