After 32 years with the City of Clarksville, Chief of Staff Jim Durrett has decided to retire from city government.
“Jim’s dedication and hard work over his 32 years with the city will be seen for many years to come.” Mayor Johnny Piper said. “Jim has worked as a team player to serve the public and give a better quality of life for the citizens of Clarksville.”
Durrett began his career in public service in 1977 with Clarksville’s Street Department. He has since worked in several other city departments and has served in a number of management positions. Shortly after beginning his first term in 1998, a tornado devastated parts of Clarksville.

That’s when the two formed a bond that went on to accomplish the many goals of the mayor and the city council. «Read the rest of this article»
