At a special-called meeting on Friday, Rhea County Commissioners voted to pay ousted former Rhea County Administrator of Elections Theresa Snyder nearly $8,000 in comp time.
Commissioners originally voted to not pay Snyder comp time earlier this year after a legal opinion from the University of Tennessee County Technical Advisory Service held that Snyder was exempt from comp time payment since she was a salaried employee and oversaw the work of both full time election commission employees and part time election commission employees.
