The Webb County Civil Service Commission voted Wednesday to reinstate terminated Community Action Agency inspector/assessor Gaspar Ambrose nearly seven months after he was fired from the agency.
The commission also awarded Ambrose back pay dating from his termination.
Civil service rules may help Mr. Ambrose's case but the county might not have a position to assign him to if he's rehired. And so this is another grievance county has to deal with, all for acting a bit too hasty.
