Bala Placed On Probation

The man who refused to pick up dead animals is on probation.

Bill Bala with the Smith County Road and Bridge Department is under a 90 day probationary period.

Bala was at the center of many issues, including the incident of removing animal remains found in the county right-of-way on Lavender Road.

Smith County Comissioners vented their frustration at Bala, and said Bala must comply with the court's requests if he wants to keep his job.
