The Escambia County Commission Thursday once again pushed back a vote on the hiring of a new county administrator. The latest inaction comes after 18 months and spending $40,000 on the search process.

For the want of a chairman, the opportunity was lost. Lumon May was out of town and traveling back to Pensacola on Thursday. He did not make it back in time for the meeting, which kicked off at 5:30 p-m.
