County Chairman and Manager Park County Vehicles without Board Vote
15 Public Utility Vehicles Parked without Board Approval:
The Harnett Dispatch
The Harnett County Public utility’s were given a order on Friday by Intern County Manager to park 15 county vehicles, meaning that the vehicles will not be drove home by employees and will not be on call if a situation should arise. This order was given after a meeting with intern county manager Jeffries at the discretion of Harnett County Chair Jim Burgin. In any event the motion was to be voted on and was not brought up for a vote in the county meetings.
Other County Commissioners were aware of this situation but did not vote on this action to take place before a motion was brought before the County Commissioners. Some feel that the board may be heading to a one man show. This action needs to be voted on before the actions were taken and as of Friday the order was given to park the vehicles. Parking county vehicles has been a major topic for Mr. Burgin for the last 4 years and has been repeatedly requested by Commissioner Jim Burgin.
