By a vote of 5-0, Williamston Town Council members voted to eliminate the town Adminsitrator's position.

The vote was more of a cost saving measure, and it cleared up any doubt as to what would happen with its current administrator, Phyllis Lollis. Lollis, who has been on paid suspension since January, will receive 60 day severance pay as part of an agreement.

An ethics case against a town administrator is moving forward.  She's accused of using her position to get a pay increase for her son.

In January, 7 On Your Side told you that Williamston Mayor Mack Durham suspended Town Administrator Phyllis Lollis.

He also fired the chief and two other officers.

The South Carolina Ethics Commission looked into a complaint that Lollis used her position to get a pay increase for her son who was a town police officer.

The commission found probable cause to support those accusations.

Durham tells our coverage partners at the Independent Mail he's called a town council meeting for Thursday to discuss Lollis' fate.

An ethics hearing for Lollis is set for May 15.  It will be held behind closed doors unless she wants it open to the public.
