Weaver confirms Council expected to remove him

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) Tuesday morning, a private good-bye breakfast was held at Horry County Council Chambers in Conway for Administrator John Weaver.

Weaver told WMBF News he is not formally resigning from his position, but does expect Council to relieve him of his duties at tonight's Horry County Council meeting.

An interim administrator is expected to be named before Thursday's budget retreat. Some Council members tell WMBF News they hope the search for the next Horry County Administrator will start in house before the county turns to a firm to aid in that search.

Tonight's Council meeting starts at 6 p.m. at Council Chambers. Discussion of Weaver's contract is on the agenda for executive session.
