An ethics complaint filed against a Nicholson City Council member will be heard by the town’s ethics board at 6:30 p.m. tonight (Tuesday) at the community center.
Former Nicholson council member Faye Seagraves filed the ethics complaint against councilman Lamar Watkins in a letter to the ethics board dated January 8, 2011.
Seagraves alleges that during her time in office, 2006-2009, the mayor and council received travel expenses for taking their personal vehicles to the Georgia Municipal Association (GMA) Convention in Savannah.
Seagraves said Watkins signed that he was driving and he took travel expenses even though he actually rode with council member Howard Wilbanks to the convention.
Seagraves lists the amount of money that she believes Watkins owes the city as $210.
