McKown, 39, announced his resignation in July after he was arrested in Lincoln County, N.C., on charges of drinking while driving and having an open container in the vehicle.
Those charges are the reason for the hearing, which has now been postponed three times.
Advocates to recognize homeless awareness
Local advocates for the homeless will recognize National Hunger & Homeless Awareness Week next month.
A candlelight vigil on Nov. 9 at the Rock Hill City Hall Amphitheater aims to "keep the light burning for homeless citizens," organizers say. Donated blankets and canned goods will be collected. The event runs from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
On Nov. 13, Oakland Baptist Church will host an agency fair promoting various agencies that serve homeless people. It runs from 2 to 4 p.m.
The events conclude Nov. 15 with a community Thanksgiving feast at 11 a.m. at Redeeming Life Christian Center on South Jones Avenue. Transportation will be provided from points around the city.
