COVINGTON, Ga. – Employees of the City of Covington can now work as long as they want and are able after a vote by the city council.

At their Jan. 22 meeting, members voted unanimously to remove the city’s mandatory retirement age from its Code of Ordinances. Prior to Tuesday’s vote, employees reaching age 70 were required to retire from employment with the city.

A city official said the change was made at the recommendation of the city attorney based on state law.
