Commissioner Conflict
A resolution during a meeting of Hawkins County Commissioners sought to remove another commissioner from his role as the Interim Solid Waste Director for the county. Charlie Freeman was appointed by Mayor Melville Bailey to take over the position. Freeman is paid 500-dollars per month in that position. Freeman is just one of nine commissioners that have conflicts of interest in dealing with county matters. The motion failed 7-10 with four members abstaining from the vote. Some are considering this a challenge of the mayor’s power…he is scheduled to run for re-election in May. (CC)
