Hamilton County Mayor Continues Feud With County Commission

Nov 3, 2022 | Political News

The battle rages between Hamilton County Mayor Weston Wamp and the Hamilton County Commission regarding the mayor’s attempt to fire County Attorney Rheubin Taylor and the Commission’s consideration of a civil service system for the county government.

On Monday, Mayor Wamp attempted to veto four of the County Commission’s resolutions:

  • A resolution to protect the county attorney’s office
  • A resolution to guarantee the continuation of all government contracts and operations 
  • A resolution that would establish a civil service system for employees of the county government
  • A resolution that would establish a moratorium on the firing of any employees until the county has put a civil service system into effect

The Commission, however, overruled those vetoes on Wednesday.
