After nearly a quarter century on the job, Buz Eddy is stepping down as Gulf Breeze City Manager.
Eddy first announced his retirement in January, effective May 1.
“It had partly to do with age, and I just decided that this would be a good time. I’m 62 and a half, and kind of a good time to transition from the driver’s seat to another role for the city,” said Eddy.
Looking back, he says what stands out most for him is the culture – not City Hall, but the community as a whole in both good times and bad.
