Meridian, Miss. Meridian's temporary chief administrative officer is still temporary, and there is no sense of when he might become permanent.
The city council refused to vote on the nomination of Curt Goldacker as CAO Tuesday night after Mayor Percy Bland tried to nominate him for a second time.
City council president, Dr. George Thomas, says he's not sure when the council will take up the nomination again. He said the city's looming budget will now take priority.
Bland has indicated Goldacker will continue performing the duties of CAO as a temporary employee.
