GUEST SEGMENT: COUNTY COMMISSION
Now that Jim Coppinger has been named County Mayor, The Hamilton County Commission will appoint someone to fill his seat at this mornings county commission meeting.. Commissioners hope it will go smoother than the vote for County Mayor, and some residents are still raising concerns about why they couldn't vote.
Chairman Larry Henry was our guest this morning. He said it will take 5 votes to appoint the new commissioner. He also says because of the law, the commission has to make the appointment. He went on to say cost would be a major factor for a special election.
