Hancock supervisor seeks investigation of water district

BAY ST. LOUIS — A Hancock County supervisor is calling for an investigation into the Diamondhead Water & Sewer District following the abrupt resignations of several commissioners and employees.

Supervisor Steve Seymour tells The Sun Herald he plans to ask his fellow supervisors at their next meeting to approve a full investigation into the controversy surrounding a multimillion-dollar construction project and its possible connection to the resignations of General Manager Mike Collard, Chairman Charlie Johnson and two district employees.

Some city and county officials are also upset about Mike Collard’s push to build a $4 million administrative building for the district.

Seymour said supervisors asked Collard not to spend tax dollars on what the county considered an unnecessary and expensive office.
