Public Works Director Suspended

Rumors have circulated for a couple of weeks about Larry Thurman, the Public Works director, being suspended. According to a response to an Open Records request, “Mr. Thurman is in fact on paid administrative leave during an on-going investigation into a complaint filed against him.” Information from the investigation was presented to the Board of Commissioners for action on Tuesday, October 16, 2007. After the BOC meeting, Commissioners were asked if the Public Works director had been fired. The response, “We don’t hire and fire, the County Manager does that.” The County Manager was then asked if Mr. Thurman still had a job. The response, “At this time he does.” Unconfirmed reports are that the suspension is/was for 15 days.
