BYLINE: Steve Visser


East Point interim City Manager Angela Montgomery terminated city Finance Director James Schuster on Tuesday. Mayor Earnestine Pittman said no reason was given for the dismissal. Montgomery could not be reached for comment. Derrick Cannon was appointed interim director. Last month, the City Council terminated the contract of City Manager Crandall Jones. In the fall election, three council members who supported an increase in utility rates through a franchise fee and were seen as allied with Jones were voted out of office.
