Robert ‘Bob’ Zellner of the Redbone community in south Lamar County is now the county administrator. His hiring came after a brief closed session at a called meeting Sept. 13 at the county administration building. Zellner was at work two days later. His salary was set at $60,000 a year.’The first thing I plan to do is look over the expenditures and budgets and see where we can start using the money better,’ he said. ‘I want to look at how all the departments are run and if there are any improvements we can do. I’m hoping to have things running a little smoother but for now I’m stamping out fires and preparing for what I’m afraid might be a rough winter.’Zellner, who worked for Lamar from 1983-89 and Upson County from 2006-07, came from his most recent job in Worth County, where he has been since 2009. During his career he has also worked in Hampton and Villa Rica.
