DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

Dougherty County Commission Chairman Chris Cohilas says Michael McCoy deserves to be named the permanent county administrator.  

That is why he has scheduled a commission meeting for Monday to reconsider his hiring. 

On Friday, Cohilas called for the special called meeting following the commission's Monday work session.    

Last month, commissioners voted 4 to 3 not to promote the interim administrator permanently, despite McCoy being named the Most Qualified Candidate by two competitive searches.

Cohilas said that is hurting employee morale, considering if they could ever be promoted.

"We are hearing directly from the department heads what the impact has been on the county's inability to name Mr. McCoy as administrator, despite the fact that he won the process," said Cohilas.

Cohilas said a tremendous outpouring of support for McCoy from both the public and his co-workers is why he deserves to be promoted.

The special called meeting will follow Monday's 10 a.m. commissioner work session.

Below is a press release from Cohilas about the special called meeting:
