The Biloxi City Council has confirmed David Nichols as the city’s new chief administrator officer.
The Sun-Herald reports the 56-year-old Nichols lives in Biloxi and worked for the city for 11 years, serving as the chief administrative officer during Mayor A.J. Holloway’s first two terms.
David Staehling, the city’s director of administration, will retire at the end of December and Nichols said they would spend some time together before he leaves. Nichols was director of the Economic and Urban Development Department for Gulfport.
