Brookhaven’s Community Development Director Susan Canon has been promoted to assistant city manager.

Canon will continue to oversee the Community Development Department but will also assist the city manager in other city operations.

Ben Song has been promoted to community development deputy director. He will assist Canon and manage code enforcement, building services and land development for the city. Song was hired in 2013 as planning and zoning manager.

“Ms. Canon and Mr. Song have been dedicated to Brookhaven’s success since they joined the city. Their many years of previous experience combined with their insights from time working in Brookhaven will prove to be invaluable as they step into their new leadership positions,” Brookhaven City Manager Marie Garrett said in a press release.
