DeKalb rejects parks director's appeal of firing over swim meet snafu
August 11, 2009 --

Marilyn Boyd Drew appealed her July 20 firing as DeKalb County’s parks and recreation director, but she won’t get a hearing like the county’s police chief did. Records show the county rejected Drew’s appeal on the grounds that her job was exempt from the Merit System’s protection. She was once mistakenly classified as a merit employee, but not anymore.
