The hearing will be held at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 16, before Judge John Ott at the Jackson County Courthouse in Jefferson.
The hearing will be held on the petition filed by the mayor and council asking for a court review of the allegations.

Monk Tolbert is the mayor. The council members include: Judy Stowe, John Pethel, Hilda Gee and Thomas Marlow.
