CANTON, Miss. (AP) - Madison County’s emergency management director has been fired.

The county’s Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 Tuesday to fire Butch Hammack, who had served in the role for 12 years.

The Clarion-Ledger reports (https://on.thec-l.com/2cor764 ) that District 3 Supervisor Gerald Steen was the sole dissenting vote. It is unclear why Hammack was terminated.

Board president Trey Baxter says Tom Lariviere, the retired Madison fire chief, will fill the post on an interim basis.

Hammack said Thursday the move was unexpected “but I’m doing good.”
