CPU Refuses Meeting with Clarksdale Officials

CLARKSDALE, MS (Ben Caxton) — Attorneys representing Clarksdale Public Utilities say the commissioners will not attend a Monday meeting at city hall. Oxford attorney David O’Donnell and former city attorney Curtis Boschert have been retained by CPU. The mayor and commissioners asked suspended General Manager Mark Johnson, CFO Steve Reed, and communications director Chris Campos plus the utility board and attorney David Hunt to meet with them Monday. But O’Donnell says having all five CPU commissioners at a meeting would violate the state’s Open Meeting act as it would constitute a quorum and require advance notice. The CPU board is appointed by the mayor and commissioners while Boschert, former fire chief Obert Douglas and municipal judge Joe Gibbs are suing the city in federal court for wrongful termination.
