Supervisors reject sheriff’s proposal for civil service system
Published: February 23,2012
CORINTH — Alcorn County supervisors will not support Charles Rinehart’s proposal to support legislation to create a civil service system for his employees.
The Daily Corinthian reports a motion by Supervisor Gary Ross to support the proposal died for lack of a second.
Rinehart had said he would not pursue the change without the board of supervisors support.
Supervisor Tim Mitchell says it would be difficult to remove an employee.
Rinehart says the system would prevent a new sheriff from firing employees without a legitimate reason. As it stands now, he said employees serve at the will of the sheriff, and a sheriff can fire an employee because of a personal disagreement.
Supervisor Dal Nelms says it should either be done for all county employees or for none.
