KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett has appointed an interim director of Knox County Veterans and Senior Services.

Veterans Service Officer Robert "Buzz" Buswell takes over the position from Hemal Tailor who resigned last week after allegedly covering for a fellow employee accused of drinking alcohol and driving a county-owned vehicle.

Buswell will continue to work with Deputy Veterans Service Officer Tom Humphries to ensure that Knox County's veterans continue to have access to the benefits and services they have earned.

"Buzz has done an outstanding job serving the veterans and taxpayers of this community, and I am very confident that he will continue to work hard and be successful in this new position," said Mayor Burchett.
