There was no sign of newly reinstated DeKalb County CEO Burrell Ellis Tuesday at the last county commission meeting of the year.
Ellis has less than three weeks remaining before the county transitions to a new CEO. Some commissioners remain unclear about what Ellis can accomplish in that time.
"I don't frankly know at all what he'll do, because he's autonomous in that regard," said Commissioner Jeff Rader outside the meeting.
Commissioner Kathie Gannon said she's not expecting Ellis' return to disrupt the board's work.
