WAYNESBORO, MS (WDAM) -

Dozens of Waynesboro city employees could begin the new year without a job. 

That's if mayor Richard Johnson and the Board of Alderman can't agree on how to rehire them.

A majority of the board wants all employees, about 60 of them, rehired with a single vote, but Johnson wants each employee voted on individually. 

Earlier this month, the board did vote to rehire all employees at once, but Johnson vetoed that decision

The Board failed to override.

The issue will come up again at a special meeting on Friday.

If they can't reach an agreement by midnight on December 31, all employees could be be out of a job.

    Though soft-spoken, Steven Anderson hits hard. A "violent" runner as Southern Miss teammate Keon Howard describes him, perhaps Anderson is making up for all those years spent at quarterback. "Steven runs like he doesn't want to be hit no more,” Howard said.
