In a special meeting held at Crockett City Hall on Friday afternoon Aug. 14, Housing Authority of the city of Crockett commission members voted 3-0 to terminate Executive Director Renee Minter.
The action followed a lengthy executive session that included former housing authority employees Bob Luce and Mandy Nash entering and leaving the session.
Following the action, Housing authority employee Mike Molnes approached the podium and told the commissioners that Ms. Minter had asked him to read a letter to them.
Dr. Clark asked Molnes why Ms. Minter was not present at the meeting and he responded that she did not say. Clark said a presentation should be made in person. Tubbs asked if Ms. Minter was ill and Molnes responded by saying he did not know. Tubbs said commissioners would rather hear her comments from her.
Following the meeting Dr. Clark said the authority would solicit applications to fill the position of executive director.
Minter had served in the position about 10 year.
Housing authority attorney Bill Pemberton was present for the meeting.
Commissioner members present for the meeting included Wayne Tubbs, Dr. Dale Clark, and Jack Barbee. Members recorded as absent included Bridget Lamb and Dorothy Wyatt.
In other business, commissioners elected Barbee as chairman and tabled discussion of the minutes of the prior meeting to a future one.
