It appears Canton will have to go back to the drawing board to find another replacement for its city manager position.
Peppers, who is currently the special assistant for Community Development & Finance Division at the Georgia Department of Community Affairs, wrote a letter to Canton Mayor Gene Hobgood and members of the City Manager Search Committee notifying them of his decision.
His announcement comes on the heels of at least four council members expressing their doubts about whether Peppers, who has no prior city manager experience, was the right choice for the position.
