Department Chair in Longview is Placed on the Hot Seat

LONGVIEW (KYTX) - A department Chair in Longview is on the hot seat after an oversight
of the city engineer's license.  Longview's Developmental Services Director, Kevin Cummings, has been placed on administrative leave. It was discovered that City Engineer Mark Adas did not have an engineering license in Texas. He was only licensed in Michigan.  City Manager David Willard has recommended the city fire Cummings over the mistake.
City Spokesman Shawn Hara says the decision has to be approved by City Council.

"The City Manager's recommendation is based on overall job performance. The oversight was put into consideration, but ultimately he's going to wait to make anymore comments until that decision goes before City Council" - Shawn Hara, City of Longview

The decision will be made at the next city council meeting on April 26. City
engineer mark Adas has already resigned.
