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.
