After failing to get a tax digest passed and apparently messing everything up and not listening to the County Commissioners, the Bibb County Tax Assessors were all fired. I do have to say I feel sorry for my friend Maurice “Collateral Damage” Atkinson. The county did him a disservice in firing him, though I understand them wanting to wipe the slate clean.
Maurice came in after all the screw ups, worked his butt off to fix the situation despite lots of opposition, and then was fired with everyone else. That doesn’t send the best of signals to volunteer public officials who do the best they can.
