Effingham County commissioners may approve amending an ethics ordinance that was passed only a month and a half ago.
Commissioners approved a first reading of an ethic ordinance amendment at their Jan. 4 meeting by a 4-2, with Chairman Dusty Zeigler and
Commissioner Bob Brantley voting against having the ethics ordinance changed. Commissioners opted to revert back to the ethics language contained in the personnel policies of the Effingham County human resources manual.
“There were a few things in the new ethics ordinance that I felt were items of concern,” said Commissioner Vera Jones. “It seems there may be some conflicts with the existing ordinance.”
