Washington Co. Commissioners Call Emergency Meeting

Washington County Commissioners have called an emergency meeting to deal with the unexpected open county manager position.

County Manager Steve Joyner resigned at Thursday’s meeting, much to the surprise of commissioners.

Commissioners voted down a motion to appoint an interim county manager during that same meeting. Instead, they opted to hold a special meeting to address the issue.

The special meeting will be tomorrow at 9:00 a.m. in the County Commission Chambers located at 1331 South Boulevard in Chipley.
