Southaven Mayor To Get Paycheck

Posted by WCBI News Director | August 17, 2012 / 11:59am | Local News
 JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Southaven Mayor Greg Davis will get his paycheck after a Hinds County Chancery Court judge issued a stay preventing Mississippi Auditor Stacey Pickering from seizing Davis' salary - for now - to recover disputed debt.

The Commercial Appeal reports (http://bit.ly/P2pplc ) attorneys for Davis sought a temporary restraining order Thursday to stop Pickering from garnishing the mayor's city-issued $3,700 biweekly paycheck beginning this week.

After a status conference before Hinds County Chancellor Dewayne Thomas, Davis's attorneys issued a brief statement saying Davis would get his pay, at least for this pay period.

The restraining order sought by Davis was in response to Pickering's plan to garnish Davis's pay to recover about $73,000 in remaining debt that the auditor says Davis must repay to Southaven.
