Ernie Toole retires from City of Chipley after more than 33 years ……..

Family and friends were on hand Friday to wish him well in retirement.


Friday was Ernie Toole’s last day on the job with the City of Chipley and a roomful of well-wishers was on hand at his retirement luncheon to express their appreciation for his commitment to his job, as well as to the residents of Chipley.  Toole retired after devoting 33 years and 8 months to the job.  Laughingly he said he had served under seven city administrators and indicated he got along with all of them.


Current City Manager Dan Miner simply described Toole as a man “who has his priorities in place”.


Former City Manager Jim Morris was also at the luncheon and praised Toole as being “one of the very best city employees” and an “easy person to work with”.


Councilmen Brett Butler and Tommy Sasser were also quick to praise Toole and said he was always supportive of the City of Chipley, as well as always willing to help the public.


Thanking his co-workers and friends for the luncheon and gifts,  Toole said he had enjoyed his time with the City and providing services to the citizens of the community.
