Ingham Road Official Reassumes Position

May 29, 2012

A top administrator at the Ingham County Road Commission says he is “elated” to be back at his old position.

Longtime Operations Director Jim Benjamin reassumed his job Tuesday after being fired last October over alleged turmoil at the agency.

Despite the reinstatement, Benjamin and his attorney say they have not dropped a wrongful termination lawsuit against the county. 

In its last official gathering last week, the road commission offered Benjamin his job back without conditions.  The Ingham County Board of Commissioners will oversee the agency beginning Friday.
