W. James Grogan’s term as Dawsonville mayor came to an end Oct. 9, 2017.

Judge C. Andrew Fuller granted the motion of the City of Dawsonville to dismiss James Grogan’s appeal to remain as mayor of Dawsonville. Fuller, the chief judge for the Northeast Judicial District, based his ruling on improper filing procedures.

On May 15, 2017 Dawsonville City Council members held a hearing regarding the potential removal of Grogan as mayor with Judge Ron Reemsnyder presiding. Upon closing the hearing, a motion was made to remove the mayor. It passed with a 3-1 vote. Grogan appealed the vote two days later. A hearing was held Aug. 2 for the City of Dawsonville’s motion to dismiss Grogan’s appeal.

Grogan’s photo remained on the wall of City Hall as late as Monday afternoon. His current term began January 2, 2016 and would have ended Dec. 31, 2019.

Due to the current vacancy and vacation plans of Councilmember Caleb Phillips, the council’s work session of Oct. 16 will be re-scheduled during an emergency council meeting Tuesday, Oct. 10.

Smoke Signals will provide more details as they become available.
