...or they have not been doing their job.

As per city law (Chapter 53, Section 22) "REPORTS, AUDITS"

Each month the Commission shall provide the Mayor and City Council with a detailed, itemized report on the operation of the Utilities Commission for the previous month which report shall include an accurate accounting of the Commission's financial transactions, products produced, purchased and sold, revenues, expenditures, product losses and payroll. Once each fiscal year an external audit shall be performed by a qualified certified public accountant as selected by policy stated in 53.21(A) for professional services.

That would be over 30 audits since the mayor stopped paying his bill. Has the city council been that incompetent or is this a coverup involving more members within our local government?

I agree with you in the fact that the Council should have paid a bit more attention to the matter. However, it's not fault but the Mayors for not paying his bills, and offending the trust of his city, and it's citizens.

He says it's not his fault, and that it's a private matter.

I say that yes while a persons financial standings are his own, if you are a elected public official, you should have some sort of dignity and make sure you can hold your own.

How would the Council know about this?

The Utility Commission wouldn't have been able to know about the situation because they only meet to vote on various things such as: New water lines, what old lines to replace, and things a long that line. It is the Office staff and managements job to over see delinquent accounts, and that those counts are dealt with accordingly.

Just wondering, what are Bob Porter's credentials before he was Mayor of Paintsville?

watched and learned a lot while watching city council and utility meeting on thursday.on hometown tv.i m gona cut both a little slack.i believe no one on council or utility board knew of what larry herald and bob agreed too,nor had first hand knowledge of.i think larry had too tell the office manager to not pull bobs meter,which,that person probably got the rumor started about nonpayment.only reason its paid now is because he got caught.everyone on both councils are pretty mad right now,and they had a right too be.i personally know just about each person on these councils,and no one,likes to have their name and reputation dragged tru the mud like it has been for the last week.its been a tough week for everyone involved.the councils will do the right thing,just let it work its course.larrys resigned,or agreed to termination,and bob position will be decided by city council.

The problem with your analysis is that 2 city council persons have already proven that they support bob and will not do anything about it. Those 2 are David Vanhoose and David Trimble. Neither showed for the special called meeting on Thursday. Their absence was intentional because they have been told it takes a unanimous vote of council to remove the mayor. If I was the others I would continue calling special meetings until they show and force them to show their hand in a vote to remove the mayor. If they don't show and the people of paintsville reelect them to council the city gets what it deserves.

Where did you get your info? Did you talk with these men and they tell you that? Or did you pull it out of your ass like everything else? Do you know where they were that day? No you do not. Maybe they had prior engagements.. You people really are clueless, and I find it amusing.
