Barwick started to hold back tears as commissioners voted for his resignation.
Commissioner Howard Kessler of District Four did not vote. He called the meeting "illegal."
Commissioner Ed Brimner admits the board knew of Barwick's real estate dealings when his contract was renewed earlier this year.
Brimner claims Barwick has huge influence on which roads are paved in the county and on the standard of how they are paved.
So why did commissioners decide now, after the contract renewal, that this was an issue?
Barwick, who served with the board close to 10 years, has agreed to stay on 30 more days to continue out his tenure and help county officials close out a list of projects.
