Commerce – Commerce Mayor Quay Throgmorton is calling for the immediate reinstatement of City Manager Dion Miller, claiming Miller's March 4 suspension was illegal.
The council voted 3-2 that day to suspend Miller indefinitely with pay, a move Throgmorton feels doesn't fall in line with the City's Charter or governing document. According to the Charter, it takes a four-fifths majority vote to remove a city manager. But Miller's contract states only a three-fifths majority is needed to suspend him.
Greenville – Greenville ISD's Board of Trustees, meeting in regular session Tuesday evening, voted unanimously to name Chawn C. Cooper as Greenville High School's new Head Football Coach/Athletic Director.
