County manager conundrum in McDowell County


WELCH (WVVA) - McDowell County has been operating with a County Manager and a County Administrator since March.

Clif Moore, the County Manager says he is willing to step down, if he gets paid four months in advance. "As I do now, I would come in the mornings, and check with folks to see if there is anything that needs to be done." Moore says.

County Clerk, Donald Hicks says he doesn't have a problem with this decision but he is worried that it is illegal for him to write Moore a check in advance.

Hicks says, "It is illegal according to the statue, according to the auditors and according to the attorney general."

Hicks provided W-V-V-A will a copy of these items saying, "It is important to make the community aware of everything that is going on."

For now, the situation remains unsolved.
