Brookhaven, GA, October 18, 2016 – by Trey Benton – Brookhaven City Arborist Kay Evanovich will be leaving the City of Brookhaven for a position with the City of Decatur.
“Kay was a valuable member of the City team,” the City said in a statement supplied upon request to The Post. “She had a passion to preserve and maintain the City’s tree canopy. Kay will be dearly missed as an integral part of the Community Development Department and the City of Brookhaven.”
As of the time of this post, the City says the plan to replace Evanovich is unclear, but did add that the City’s two Land Development Inspectors are Certified Arborists.
During her time with the City of Brookhaven, Evanovich worked closely with City Staff, Elected Officials and citizen groups to formulate a Tree Ordinance tailored more specifically to the Brookhaven area, rather than the former which was pulled over from DeKalb after incorporation.
Evanovich’s last day with the City of Brookhaven will be October 28, 2016.
