Wanda Tyler


New Morgan County Regional Landfill/Recycling Director Wanda Tyler’s contract will pay her an annual salary of $87,179.

The Decatur City Council approved her contract Monday night with a 4-1 vote.

Councilman Billy Jackson cast the only vote against her hiring because he said he opposed the hiring process that led to Tyler’s selection.

The contract calls for Tyler to start in her new job Oct. 21. City Council policy requires her to move to Decatur within two months of her start date.

She will serve under current Landfill Director Rickey Terry until he retires next fall.

Tyler, 49, has been serving as deputy director of the Department of Public Works for Hattiesburg, Mississippi.
