Those in Council Chambers who attended a special meeting of Lancaster County Council on Wednesday, Nov. 19, gave Steve Willis a standing ovation when Council members unanimously voted to “affirm Council’s confidence in our administrator.” However, no members of County Council would discuss why the meeting was called. “We have executive sessions on an ongoing basis,” said Larry McCullough, Council chairman. “We discuss personnel issues on an ongoing basis. We have standing executive sessions and if you look at our agendas we have those all the time.”
Applause and cheers erupted from a large crowd inside Lancaster County Council’s chambers on Wednesday afternoon, Nov. 19, moments after council members voted to keep County Administrator Steve Willis in his position.
