West Lamar Water Association members vote in special meeting

The West Lamar Water Association held a special meeting Monday night to consider the removal of one of its board members. 

The meeting, which was held at the Midway voting precinct, was announced through letters sent to members -- letters that called for the removal of director Jerry McRaney.  In the letter from the board members, it claimed that McRaney deliberately put out misinformation about the board in letters to the Hattiesburg American. The board's letter also claimed that McRaney requested an interview with WDAM to futher mislead members.

Monday's meeting ended about 9:30 p.m.  About 100 members in attendance cast their vote -- but it appears that McRaney has been voted off the board. News 7 is following this story.
