Santa Rosa County Administrator to leave job

Posted on February 6, 2018 by Staff reports

Following a medical leave of absence taken at the end of 2017, Santa Rosa County Administrator Tony Gomillion told Santa Rosa County Commissioners today that he will be leaving the job in June.

Gomillion was hired around two years ago to replace former longtime Administrator Hunter Walker. He was present at Monday’s county commission meeting.

According to sources with the county, Gomillion will be taking leave between now and June so his day-to-day operations will likely be “greatly reduced.”

The county in a press release issued today announced Gomillion planned to retire in June and stated he was “honored and privileged to have been part of the Santa Rosa County team for 33 years.”

Commissioners will discuss how to handle news of Gomillion’s departure at a February 13 workshop.

Gomillion is charged with overseeing Santa Rosa County’s $146 million operations. His contract is for $135,720 annually, and he also receives a $500 monthly vehicle allowance.
