Due to the arrogance of Mayor Robert Rose and the Civil Service Board thousands of dollars must now be paid to former Chief of Police Bobby Hickman.

In a recent ruling it was found that the Civil Service Board did not follow lawful procedures when terminating Hickman. It appears that they either didn't read the law correctly, didn't look closely enough at the regulations, or just made the rules up as the went.

Which ever happened, now the City must reimburse Hickman back pay and benefits from the date of his termination until now.

Rose and the Civil Service Board need to think before they act. Instead of being proactive on behalf of the city, they are always stepping it and making it worse.

The original story is on the Leesville Leader website.

According to the article, if I read it correctly, not only does the city have to reimburse him back pay and benefits with interest, they also have to give him his job back.

That's gonna be interesting, since he's in federal prison!

Can we all agree now that Bobby Rose/Willie Banks was the worst thing to happen to Leesville since the great fire of 1906?

So what he won !!! He still is going to lose his job he is still in jail all the way up in Illinois doing his fed time which should be getting out in around 5 years.

He can be let go now if the CS board gets off their asses and files the paper work , may want to brush up on the CS laws there board or you will cost the city even more money!!

That being said Bobby (jailbird) Hickman is done in law enforcement, he can alway get a job with Lopez selling drugs in Texas I am sure with Bobby's brains and Lopez's bronze they will make a killing, or would that be the other way around?

Oh and for you dumb asses who back Bobby I bet you are the first ones he calls when he needs a ride home from jail lol you dumb asses!!!!

I wonder how Rose is gonna play this off?? I bet he spends more money trying to overturn it in the state supreme court! Somebody needs to tell him to quit spending our money unnecessarily! He is in jail, so the civil sevice board is going to have to fire him again?? That should be easy with the stacked board Rose has appointed!!

You can bet your last dollar that he's gonna appeal this to a higher court. His ego won't let him do otherwise. He is incapable of saying, "Okay, I tried and I lost, fair and square." He just can't do it. And, as you said, it's not HIS money he's spending, it's OURS, so what does he care?

Actually ghostsniper, 46 months equals 3 years 10 months. NOT 5 YEARS!
What on earth would make you think he would actually WANT that job in that corrupt, shithole town back anyway?!?

As for you Word-he was reinstated as of the day of the ruling. Maybe you should read the article.

I do have to applaud the Leesville Leader for at least mentioning it on their website even if it's in the small caption stories. KVVP is still waiting on marching orders from Rose before they mention it on their website. They probably have to wait until Rose gets the deer in the headlight look off his face!

Let's see 3 years of back pay with interest plus the $2600 for the hearing. That's probably close to $200,000, then figure in the attorney's cost to to city and civil service boards.... There goes a chunk out the window that could have been spent on fixing your streets and water! Read the opinion of the court, Rose and the attorney had to know that they were wrong!

So how is it that the city doesn't have the money to fix its sewers, it doesn't have the money to fix its streets, it doesn't have the money to replace broken fire hydrants, it doesn't have the money repair its broken water system, but it DOES have the money to buy fancy light poles for the turnaround, and it DOES have the money to file suit against anybody and everybody that the mayor doesn't like? How many people has Rose taken to court -- and lost -- in the past 2-1/2 years? Rose's ego just cost us taxpayers somewhere in the area of $175,000, just on the Hickman case alone. How many broken water pipes would THAT have fixed?
