Rosson still an option for county administrator

NATCHEZ — Adams County Board of Supervisors President Darryl Grennell said Wednesday the board may still have a shot at hiring Paul Rosson as its county administrator.

Rosson of Tennessee, who was preferred candidate for the job, told supervisors Feb. 3 he decided against taking the job offer that he verbally accepted in January.

Rosson said he did not think he could accept the risk of working at the will of a political board since county administrators in the State of Mississippi can be fired without cause and cannot enter into job contracts.

The board had a specially-called meeting Tuesday to discuss the county administrator position.

The discussion of the administrator position was held in executive session, but Grennell said after Tuesday’s meeting the board is still in contact with Rosson and is exploring ways to work out an agreement that would bring him to Mississippi.

“There’s a possibility that something can be worked out with Paul and if so, he is still technically on the table (as an option),” Grennell said.

The board voted at its Feb. 7 meeting to advertise for new applicants for the position.

The board has not yet run an advertisement, Grennell said.
