Councilmen object to the termination of water dept. employees

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

Two Laurel City Councilmen say the city administration should have never terminated two water department employees.

Councilmen Trey Chinn and Manuel Jones say two supervisors were terminated after the council voted 4 to 2 in favor of reorganizing the water department which is managed by United Water. The reorganization of the department comes weeks after an internal investigation was done because back in May the department $4100 in funds missing.

The administration says the missing funds had nothing to do with the department being restructured.
