The Anderson County Council finally removed the ‘interim’ from county administrator Rusty Burns’ title, ending a stretch of approximately five years during which the issue, which really wasn’t much of an issue, persisted.
The Council had intended to take the action at the last Council meeting, but the minutes of the personnel committee meeting at which the recommendation was approved were unavailable. Council chairman and personnel committee member Tommy Dunn postponed the final vote so that the minutes could be on hand. “We don’t want anyone to say that we tried to sneak anything by them,” said Dunn at the time.
