The city of Natchez has fired its information technology director, and the mayor and the former director have differing opinions about the reason.
Mayor Butch Brown said on Tuesday IT director Eric Junkin has not been forthcoming in solving issues with the city's computer systems. One of the problems, Browns said, is that the laptops purchased for police patrol cars have not yet been installed.
Junkin said installing the laptops in the patrol cars is not as easy as just taking them out of the box and installing them in the cars.
Junkin chocked up his termination to personality differences with the mayor and city hall staff.
The Natchez Democrat reports the mayor will ask the board of aldermen to retroactively approve Junkin's termination at its next meeting.
