Tempers flare at county meeting
Placeholder Image
County officials voted 3-1 Monday to allow Southern Insurance Company to continue handling the county’s insurance. The decision came after a stalemate in April when John Pelham and Linda Hillis voted in favor of Southern Insurance, while Commissioners Hershel Wells and Gary Prater voted to give the bid to Hoover & Son Insurance.It was at that time Wells said, “I’m not going to change my vote.” But he did change his vote, as he sided with Pelham and Hillis to continue allowing Southern Insurance to remain the county’s insurance carrier.
