Officials ‘troubled’ by probations - Mayor says aldermen playing ‘fast and loose’ with discipline

April 3, 2014

Starkville aldermen have sent a loud message to city department heads since the new board took office in July. But some city officials, including at least one alderman, think that loud message may not always be abundantly clear.

The board placed City Engineer Edward Kemp on 6 months probation Tuesday, just two months after the aldermen promoted his position to “department head” status. He joined two other department heads already on active disciplinary probation, including Personnel Director Randy Boyd and Sanitation and Environmental Services Director Emma Gandy.
