The Washington County Commissioners met with Health Officer William Christoffel and his attorney in closed session for more than an hour Tuesday but made no decision on his employment status.
A state investigation report completed last month alleged Christoffel on numerous occasions engaged in sexually harassing behavior while on the job.
Commissioners President Gregory I. Snook said the commissioners heard Christoffel's side of the story in closed session.
"The commissioners took no action," Snook said. "We're going to think about it for a little bit."
Snook said the commissioners hope to make a decision in one to two weeks.
Although he is a state employee, the commissioners have the authority to terminate Christoffel's employment with concurrence from the state.
Snook said he planned to call S. Anthony McCann, secretary of the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, today to talk about the matter.
