At the March 4 county commission meeting, two county road department employees each received a raise and a promotion after some debate.

At the request of Road Department Director Howard Nabors, Lamar Hardy and Thomas Sadler were promoted to the positions of working foreman.

Commissioner Noah Lockley moved to grant the promotions, and was seconded by Commissioner Smokey Parrish. The motion passed 4-1, with Commissioner Pinki Jackel opposed.

When Nabors made his request, Jackel asked if there was only one opening. Nabors said there was one opening for the position of assistant superintendent.

“What do you think you need to do the job?” Commissioner Cheryl Sanders asked Nabors. “That’s the main thing.”

Nabors said that instead of an assistant superintendent, Hardy could help handle prison work crews and fill in when the regular secretary was out. He said Sadler was experienced with roadwork and culverts.

“Lamar would be over the inmates and making sure the job is done,” said Nabors.
