NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - Credit checks will once again be required for any new department heads working for Adams County.
The Natchez Democrat reported on Tuesday that although the board previously voted to not allow credit checks, it overturned the rule once again in a 3-2 vote Monday.
District 2 Supervisor Henry Watts, was the only board member who voted against the previous motion not requiring credit checks.
Watts says someone who is in charge of millions of dollars of the county's budget should be responsible with money.
