Officials with the Anderson city administrator's office said the former police chief will get a public grievance hearing after he was fired in August.
City officials made the decision Monday afternoon that former Anderson Police Chief Martin Brown's grievance hearing will be open to the public.
Brown requested the grievance hearing after he was fired on Aug. 23. He had been placed on administrative leave prior to being fired.
Anderson city attorney J. Franklin McClain said that although city officials do not think the state statute requires a public grievance hearing, they have decided to open the hearing because Brown requested it.
"We are satisfied that we can conduct this in an open meeting that is respectful of the privacy of those involved," said McClain.
City Manager John Moore said Brown investigated top police department employees after they complained about his performance as chief.
Moore said Brown disobeyed instructions not to confront those employees.
The grievance hearing is scheduled for Wednesday at 2 p.m. at City Hall in the Council Chambers.
