A vote about Lauderdale County administrator Mike Sumrall at the most recent board of supervisors meeting appears to be in dispute.
During the meeting, supervisors took a 3-2 vote to accept Sumrall's resignation. Or at least that's what appeared to happen.
But there is definitely a lot of confusion on the eleventh floor of the Lauderdale County Annex Building, where county supervisors have their offices, concerning this issue.
What we do know is that county administrator Mike Sumrall has not officially turned in a letter of resignation. He is currently on vacation until Feb. 3.
Newscenter 11 talked to three supervisors Wednesday about what last week's vote actually meant.
"In my opinion, it was just to show that he was going a good job and I think he is doing a good job," said District 2's Wayman Newell.
"I consider it a vote that, if his resignation was rendered, it would be accepted," said Craig Hitt of District 3.
"From my position, I thought the board had voted to accept his resignation and I'm expecting him to turn it in," said District 4's Joe Norwood.
This issue could resurface during Thursday's board work session and the recessed board meeting scheduled for Thursday evening.
