A due process hearing for fired Smithsburg Police Chief Tommy Bowers has been rescheduled for Thursday, Dec. 4, at 5:30 p.m. at the Town Hall.
The previously announced Nov. 25 date posed a conflict for one of Bowers' attorneys, according to Edward Kuczynski, an attorney for the town.
The previous date had been set by a U.S. District Court judge who heard arguments from both sides during a Nov. 6 hearing in Baltimore.
Bowers' lawsuit claims the town acted improperly by firing him in August without a due process hearing. It asks for reinstatement and back pay.
