Hope Council to hear accusations against employee

The Hope Town Council will hear accusations against an unidentified town employee later this month.

Several people at previous meetings have asked that the council look into accusations of wrongdoing against the unnamed employee. The town’s attorney had suggested that any personnel discussion needed to be held in an executive session, which are closed to the general public.

At the close of a council work session last night, Councilman Ohmer Miller asked when the council would hold a special session to hear the complaint. Outgoing council president Clyde Compton last year passed the decision on how to proceed to his successor, new Council President Ed Johnson.

At last night’s meeting, Johnson and the council agreed to hold an executive session at 6 p.m. the evening of Monday, Feb. 26th to hear the complaint.
