The Jackson County Board of Commissioners voted unanimously at Monday’s meeting to have Interim County Manager Leonard Myers investigate the alleged forced resignation of a county department head in March.
Commissioner Tom Crow made the motion after reading a prepared letter about questionable actions by former county manager Darrell Hampton.
Crow stated, “It appears that because of my efforts to gather information one of our department heads was forced to resign. The instruction (from Hampton) to have resignation tendered by March of 2011 was given during fall of 2010 after this department head had answered questions from me.”
Crow said the department head had an outstanding work record.
