The newly formed city of Tucker has hired its first Parks and Recreation director.

The city announced that it has hired Carlton “Rip” Robertson. He previously served as Director of Public Works and Parks and Recreation for the City of Doraville.

Tucker, a new city approved by voters in 2015, is in the process of taking over parks from DeKalb County. Robertson will be overseeing the transfer. According to the press release, Tucker has about a dozen parks and the Tucker Recreation Center. Robertson served 12 years as an intelligence analyst in the U.S. Army and has worked as an adviser for the Army Reserve, the press release says.

“I see Tucker as a very exciting opportunity: a new city with a new department,” Robertson said in a press release. “I know that the citizens are looking for quality parks and recreation and, with my experience, I think I can bring that to the table.”
