LAWRENCE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

The Lawrence County Commission has a new administrator after firing their interim administrator Thursday night.

Tricia Galbreath was let go after accusations surfaced that she was using county money to pay her company without commission approval. She submitted her resignation earlier in the week, but the commission decided to terminate her instead.

Commissioners said it is unclear if anything illegal happened. The case is being referred to the state ethics commission.

The commission voted to hire Donna Llewellyn as Galbreath's replacement Thursday.
