KERSHAW – Kershaw Town Council voted Nov. 5 to allow the director of its water department to hire a full-time operator for the town's wastewater treatment plant.
But does that move violate a town ordinance that calls for the town administrator to make hiring and firing decisions?
Councilman Wade Hunter, who voted against the measure, argues it does. But the majority on council apparently don't agree with him.
Hunter, Councilmen Eddie Coates and Harold Williams were outvoted, 4-3, on the matter.
Town Attorney Bob Davis sides with the majority on council.
