Published: March 2,2010
JACKSON — Hinds County’s Board of Supervisors is searching for a new administrator after firing Vern Gavin.
The five-member board voted 3-2 behind closed doors March 1 to remove Gavin, who has managed the day-to-day operations of county government since March 2008.
Supervisor Peggy Calhoun who, along with Board president Robert Graham and vice president Doug Anderson, supported the move, said Gavin’s termination went into effect immediately.
Supervisors Phil Fisher and George Smith voted against the measure.
The board has tapped EMS coordinator Ray Bryant to be interim administrator until it can hire a permanent replacement.
The Clarion-Ledger reports Gavin could not be reached for comment.
