Ellis said that he will take a lower-paying job with the Alabama Department of Transportation.I just think it’s a better decision for me personally, Ellis said by phone Monday night.His decision ends a process that began last month and ended with the Lawrence County Commission voting 3-2 to give him a four-year contract.Until the vote, only two of the commissioners were willing to give Ellis a contract.They were Mose Jones and Randall LouAllen.Commissioner Barkley Lentz joined them Monday in voting for a four-year contract for Ellis.Chairman Hutson Parker and Bradley Cross voted against it.
Cross and Parker voted earlier during the meeting to give Ellis a two-year contract.He would have received $75,000 a year for the two-year contract instead of the $70,000 figure agreed to in the four-year pact.That motion passed 4-1 with Jones dissenting, but Ellis said he could not accept it.That led to the vote to give him the four-year deal.Commissioners left the meeting thinking that they had an engineer to oversee projects estimated at more than $9 million for the next three years.
Ellis said his resignation is effective Jan.23.It will leave the commissioners without an engineer or an assistant engineer.Ellis’s official title is assistant engineer, but because recently retired County Engineer Mac Rushing has been ill for most of the year, Ellis has been the acting engineer.I’m disappointed, LouAllen said Monday night.
