Culpepper to retire as Chickamauga city manager, police chief Micheal Haney to take reins

Longtime Chickamauga City Manager John Culpepper will retire and hand over the reins on Sept. 27 to city police Chief Micheal Haney.

Culpepper, who has served for roughly 40 years as city manager, asked the City Council to appoint Haney to take his place.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to become city manager,” said Haney, who has served for about a year as assistant city manager. “I’ve always had John to lean on. He will stay on as an adviser to answer questions.”

Haney has worked 16 years for the city police force and was named chief six years ago. He grew up in Chickamauga and is a Gordon Lee Memorial High School graduate.
