Bill Vaughan has resigned from the Hall County Board of Tax Assessors after 13 years.
"I’m not as good help as I once was, so I just thought I’d take it easy a while," Vaughan said Friday.
Vaughan will end his service on the board March 1.
This was not a sudden decision, as Vaughan said he has been thinking of retiring from the board for some time. "I’ve been on it 13 years, I figure it’s about time," Vaughan said. "It’s time to quit. I’m 80 years old."
Vaughan said he is glad he was able to work in the tax assessors office for so long.
"I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. They’re some of the nicest people in the world," Vaughan said.
Vaughan was one of three assessors, including former board chairman Emory Martin and current Chairman Terrell Gaines, who were under a GBI investigation for misappropriating county funds through holiday and per diem pay.
Vaughan and Gaines have denied any wrongdoing.
