Booneville: Department head no longer in post

By The Associated Press

BOONEVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Another department head has been removed from his position in the city of Booneville.

Mayor Joe Eaton tells WTVA TV Billy McQueen is no longer the head of the gas and water department.

Eaton declined to release details because it is a personnel matter.

He does say the removal would have to be approved by the board of aldermen during their regularly scheduled meeting on Sept. 20.

The board voted to fire Police Chief Steve Bingham on Aug. 20.
