Bobby Eleuterius Retires
A D’iberville great officially announced his retirement tonight. Tears were shed and many paid their respects to City Manager and long time Harrison County Board of Supervisor Bobby Eleuterius.
Eleuterius stepped down as city manager for D’iberville after serving as a catalyst for development throughout the city for the past few years. After his appointment as city manager in 2013, Eleuterius played a key role in bringing the Scarlet Pearl, the city’s first casino, to D’iberville.
Eleuterius is the first D’iberville city manager in the past several years who has chosen to leave on his own without scandal. He tells News 25 he’s thankful to have worked for such a great city.“The people have been good to me for six terms on the Board of Supervisors and on the school board. Now I represent the city as its manager. It gives me a lot of satisfaction because when I first took office over here, as the mayor mentioned, we didn’t even have water and sewer and we put the water and sewer and we watched it steadily grow and now it’s all about location,” said Eleuterius.
Eleuterius says he’s most looking forward to spending time with his six grandchildren when he retires. His last day will be June 1st so he can allow the city to find his replacement.
