Aldermen question stipends received by Davis; petition Hood

SOUTHAVEN — The Southaven Board of Alderman has asked the attorney general’s office whether two stipends received by Mayor Greg Davis are legal.

The Commercial Appeal reports a $5,000 educational stipend and a $2,700 longevity stipend are added to the mayor’s $145,000 annual salary.

A seven-month investigation by the state auditor’s office revealed that Davis misspent $153,000 on clothing, a family trip, gay sex shop merchandise and other personal items.

With the help of supporters, Davis has repaid $96,000. He still owes $63,000, as the state and FBI investigation into his expenses continues.

Another of the mayor’s stipends has already been cut.

Last month, his $35,000-a-year stipend for overseeing the city’s sewer and water operations, which was also part of his salary, was eliminated.
