HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

After 33 years of service to the City Of Huntsville, City Administrator Rex Reynolds is retiring.

Reynolds announced his plans for retirement at a news conference with mayor Tommy Battle, Monday morning. His retirement begins January 1, 2014.

Reynolds assumed the role as City Administrator in 2008 at the request of Mayor Tommy Battle. He serves as the top non-elected official in City government, with a role similar to that of a CEO.

"Rex has served this city admirably and selflessly for decades, and he has been my most trusted advisor, manager, confidant and friend," said Mayor Battle. "He deserves the joys and pleasures of a happy retirement, though I expect that will include a continually active role in public service." 

The former Garrison Commander at Redstone Arsenal, Colonel John Hamilton, will serve as City Administrator after Reynolds retires.

    Why did Cracker Barrel fire Brad's wife?
