City Attorney and Computer Drama on Tap for Commission Today
Today, Augusta Commissioners will talk about firing City Attorney Eugene Jessup. One month ago, Mayor Deke Copenhaver sent him a letter, asking him to step down. He never resigned and continues to get his $100,000 a year salary because he is on paid leave. Also, Commissioners will tackle the "hard-drive drama." Commissioner Marion Williams wants to talk about a decision last month to reprimand Commissioner Calvin Holland after he asked to look at the city administrator's computer hard drive. The issue was on the agenda at the last meeting, but the meeting adjourned before commissioners ever discussed it.

Superintendent Update
Today we will finally learn who the three finalists are for Richmond County's School Superintendent position. About 30 people applied to replace the retired Dr. Charles Larke. The board is required to release the names of the finalists before final interviews.

Soldier's Funeral Arrangements

It's Monday, June 11 at 11 a.m.
