Morgan welcomes back new chief tax appraiser, Rodgers

Tia Lynn Ivey News

After one chief tax appraiser left last year, Morgan County is now welcoming back a new chief tax appraiser, Guy Rogers, who worked for the county two decades ago.

Rogers served as a tax appraiser from 1998-2001 in Morgan County, but left to work in Gwinnett County and then later Banks County, to better support his growing family. Now Rogers has returned and the county is thrilled to have him back.

“We interviewed him and brought him back without hesitation,” said Ron Zay, chairman of the Morgan County Tax Assessor Board. “He is solid, knowledgeable and gets along well with the public. And now his experience base is far wider than it was 20 years ago.”

Tax assessors are charged with the responsibility of valuing all real and personal property in Morgan County for taxation purposes.

“We are excited that Guy has joined our team and looking forward to his ideas for future,” said Adam Mestres, county manager.

Rogers, who resides in Good Hope, is happy to working closer to where he lives and to have the opportunity to share his expertise in Morgan County.

“After I finish doing some evaluations, I am sure we will be making some adjustments and changes, but I am not here to reinvent the wheel,” said Rogers. “I have heard we have an excellent staff and I will work with them to carry on what we do here to the best of ability.”
