Resolution reached in Davis firing appeal


Attorneys for Cicero Davis, the fired director of environmental control for the city board of health, and Youngstown Law Director Martin Hume reached a resolution of Davis’ appeal of his termination before the Youngstown Civil Service Commission.

The start of the commission meeting, scheduled for 2 p.m. Thursday, was delayed 30 minutes while attorneys worked out the deal.

Neither Hume nor Davis’ attorneys, Michael A. Moses of Columbus and Timothy R. Piatt of North Canton, would comment on the proposed resolution.

During a five-minute session, the commission, headed by Atty. James Messenger, approved a motion that the commission meeting be rescheduled for June 20 at which time the resolution is expected to be put in writing and possibly approved.

No testimony or other evidence was presented to the commission at Thursday’s meeting.
