Wallace and Roe also threatened to remove Mignon Colley from the meeting room for smiling and laughing; claiming it was disruptive to the meeting.
They also were critical of her comments on Facebook in recent months regarding the Fiscal Court’s behavior.
“My Facebook page should not be of interest to the Fiscal Court. If you want to discuss that, you can talk about it after the meeting, where it’s appropriate,” Colley said.
Wallace then accused the Journal-Times of being deliberately misleading in its reporting of payments to outside legal counsel from an account used to pay salaries of child support workers, asserting that it was simply a clerical error and had been corrected.
Court members unanimously approved the transfer of $40,000 from reserves to a newly-created account for paying fees of outside legal counsel.
After the fireworks subsided, the Fiscal Court approved the county’s monthly claims and financial statements, and accepted two bids from King Creek Drilling for repair work on two road projects.
The next regular meeting of Carter Fiscal Court is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 19 at the courthouse.
