Davis looks to keep his paycheck from garnishment by Pickering
Published: August 15,2012
SOUTHAVEN — Mayor Greg Davis is seeking a temporary restraining order to prevent Mississippi Auditor Stacey Pickering from garnishing his paycheck to recover disputed debt.
The Commercial Appeal reports the temporary order is part of a counter suit filed by Davis that also seeks to force Southaven to restore a $35,000 stipend the mayor had been paid for operating the city’s utility department. Aldermen cut the stipend in January.
Davis’ attorney is scheduled to appear in Hinds County Chancery Court tomorrow seeking the temporary restraining order, which if approved would prevent Pickering’s office from taking the mayor’s $3,700 bi-weekly paycheck.
Pickering plans to garnish the mayor’s pay to recover about $73,000 in remaining debt that the auditor says Davis must repay to Southaven in misused city funds.
