Matt Barber was sworn in to represent Marietta's Northwest Ward on the City Council. He believes transparency with the public is key.

"Transparency with our public that is a big issue that I think we need to be better with... making sure we are telling people what we are doing, how we are doing it, where the money goes, and how much we have," he said. "All of that is public information."

Scott Chaney will take over as interim city administrator on May 1, overseeing all municipal operations and departments.

"I started with the City of Marietta in 2004 as a police officer, I have done code enforcement, and then in 2009, I moved to the office as court clerk and have been there ever since," Chaney said. "I'm looking forward to working on projects to better the city, continuing street projects and drainage, and getting businesses to the city. I'm looking forward to that challenge."
