Remember back in July, Circuit Court Clerk Charles Susano went to Knox County Commission asking for a $1.5 million dollar loan so he could “protect his people” and his reason for not furloughing them like other offices did was to “protect his people”.
Well, I have an unconfirmed report that Susano has laid off / fired one of two garnishment clerks. A job that I am told is so extensive and intensive that the tasks will not be successful with only one clerk.
Additionally, he has moved an employee that answered the phone and was a file clerk to a minute clerk at Knox County Juvenile Court and I am told she is a relative of former Knox County Law Director Bud Armstrong.
Knox County Commission asked Susano if he would come and provide updates on his financial situation. Well Commission meets Monday, let’s see if that happens.
