Commissioner Turns Down City Attorney Job

Williamson County Commissioner Travis Hawkins has turned down the job of Spring Hill’s new city attorney, the Tennessean reports. Mayor Rick Graham has been trying to negotiate an employment contract with Hawkins during the past week, but the potential for a conflict with Hawkins’ elected position as a county commissioner remained the sticking point. The board will take up the issue of how to go about choosing a new city attorney at its Aug. 12 work session.
