Auditors investigating Davis’ stipend; wants another review of credit card use
Published: February 29,2012
SOUTHAVEN — The Mississippi Auditor’s Office is investigating the $35,000 utility fund stipend that Southaven Mayor Greg Davis until recently received as part of his salary.
The Commercial Appeal reports auditors also plan to ask city officials for a second review of charges by Davis on his city-issued credit card.
Davis started receiving the $35,000 annual stipend to oversee the department after the accidental drowning of utility director Chris Hadaway in 2009.
After The Commercial Appeal reported the stipend, it was cut Jan. 18 by Alderman Greg Guy while he was acting mayor in Davis’ absence.
Davis is being investigated by state and federal officials for the misuse of $170,000 of city money. He has repaid $96,000, but he still owes nearly $63,000.
