Chiefland City Manager Grady Hartzog has been granted a leave of absence to care for his wife while she is treated for lung cancer.

The City Commission approved the leave of absence using Hartzog’s accrued personal, annual and sick leave.

While Hartzog is out, City Clerk Mary Ellzey will be acting city manager.

Ellzey said anyone wanting to send well wishes to Hartzog and his wife can drop them off at or mail them to City Hall, 214 East Park Avenue, Chiefland, FL 32626.

Ellzey said cards and letters marked for the Hartzogs will be passed on unopened to the couple.
