 SHEPHERDSVILLE — He was reprimanded and then suspended.

Now, the Bullitt County Animal Shelter is without a director as Mark Williams was terminated on Wednesday.

Williams, who was in his second stint as the animal control officer, has the right  to appeal the dismissal to Bullitt Fiscal Court.

The termination closes a tumultuous relationship between Williams and Bullitt County Judge/Executive Melanie Roberts.

The latest public interaction between the two came at Tuesday’s fiscal court meeting.
