MADISON COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The Madison County Board of Supervisors postponed making a decision to decide whether or not the Madison County Election Commission is authorized to fire their attorney and hire new counsel. 

Members of the Election Commission say they voted to fire their current attorney Spence Flatgard. Some members of the board say the commission doesn't have that authority, while other members say they do.

"This is Madison County. We're going to disagree and we're going to agree, but we're trying to do the best for the taxpayers of Madison County," says District 5 Supervisor Paul Griffin. 

The board will meet again on Thursday morning.

Regardless, expectations are always high for coach Chris Robinson’s teams – JCJC is a combined 105-12 the last two seasons.
