Special Called Meeting in Southaven
(Southaven, MS) Just a small handful from the Concerned Citizens Southaven group watched, as the Southaven board of aldermen started a special call meeting Saturday morning.
“It shows that we are here, it shows support and that we are still out there watching,” said Linda Temple.
Despite waking up early, the start of the meeting is the only thing they will see.
The aldermen met privately with the city clerk and city attorney to go over a pending lawsuit involving the city, the state auditor and Mayor Greg Davis.
“Right now we are still in discussion, we can`t discuss it,” said Alderman Ronnie Hale.
This all comes after the state auditor showed up unannounced to a board of Alderman meeting earlier this month, mandating mayor Greg Davis’ paycheck be used to pay back the city more than $70,000 dollars in misused funds.
A judge stopped the auditor from taking Davis’ salary. The mayor got his paycheck this week and he is firing back.
Davis is counter suing. Hoping a judge will stop the state auditor and city of Southaven from taking or reducing his paycheck.
“If necessary, we will call the meetings as required, but right now we have come to an agreement. We just have to see how that plays out,” said Alderman Ronnie Hale.
It could play out as early as Thursday when everyone heads to court.
