County Still Looking for Attorney

Monday, 6 May 2019

L-R: Attorney Chris Coats and County Executive Brent Bush from a meeting earlier this year.

Cannon County's search continues for legal representation.  After assuming office, County Executive Brent Bush began the search for a county attorney to replace Mike Corley who now oversees the local natural gas utility district.
 
County Executive Bush interviewed several candidates and decided Chris Coates experience and background was the best choice.
 
At last month’s commission meeting, terms were discussed for a working agreement and it was decided that a variety of choices would be presented at this month’s meeting for the board to consider.
 
At last week’s meeting, three different agreements for presented for full and part time employment of Coats were on the agenda.  Commissioners rejected all three.
