Mayor Benny Perry in Trion says that he has support from at least three council members to back up his decision to demote former Trion Police Chief Charles Latta.  Perry was quoted in this weeks edition of The Summerville News as saying that  his decision to demote the police chief was “not something that just happened”, saying that it had been coming for a while.

 Meanwhile, Mr. Latta has hired a Rome attorney to represent him at Monday night’s hearing in front of the Trion Town Council.  The meeting will be an open public hearing and gets underway at 6 PM at the Trion Town Hall conference room.
