Hearing for fired Hernando public works director set for April

BROOKSVILLE — Hernando County officials have told former public works director Charles Mixson that they will conduct the post-termination name-clearing hearing he has requested at the April 13 County Commission meeting.

Mixson was fired by County Administrator David Hamilton this year for a history of projects that have been delayed and over budget, as well as a long list of other missteps.

"The scope of the hearing will be limited to the factual statements contained within the termination notice provided by the county to Mr. Mixson and any public statements made by county officials,'' assistant county attorney Jon Jouben wrote to Mixson's attorney, Bruce Snow, in a letter dated Monday.
