McComb might see turnover in some top city govern­ment jobs

Starkville Daily News - - BUSINESS -

MCCOMB, Miss. (AP) — Top govern­ment em­ploy­ees in one Mis­sis­sippi city are be­ing told they might lose their jobs.

The En­ter­prise-Jour­nal re­ports the newly in­au­gu­rated McComb mayor and Board of Select­men have voted to de­clare some de­part­ment heads and work­ers as in­terim em­ploy­ees for 90 days. The jobs are be­ing open for ap­pli­ca­tions.

Those af­fected are the po­lice chief, the city ad­min­is­tra­tor, the board at­tor­ney, the city clerk and two deputy clerks, two mu­nic­i­pal judges, the city pros­e­cu­tor and the pub­lic de­fender.

The new mayor, Quor­diniah Lock­ley, says he and the new select­men need a chance to get to know the peo­ple now hold­ing the jobs.

Select­man Ted Tul­los voted against telling those cur­rent em­ploy­ees that they are serv­ing on an in­terim ba­sis. He says the un­cer­tainty is "scary and ugly."
