NAVASSA, NC (WECT) - At least one public official is questioning the use of town resources in Navassa.
The dirt was moved for landowner Scott McCaffrey's property. McCaffrey told WECT that he spoke to the mayor about the dirt, and the mayor told him he could have it. When McCaffrey offered to pay for it and for the expense of moving it, he says he was told that he did not need to.
On Wednesday, WECT asked the mayor about the transaction, however he told us that he knew nothing about the transaction. On Thursday, when we asked him about that response, he only said "I did not want to be interviewed by Gavin." (Gavin Johnson is a reporter at WECT.)
During Thursday's meeting, the mayor said there is no policy against using town equipment for non-town related projects. He said it has happened several times over the years.
Navassa Town Councilman Tony Burgess said he would like all issues to go before the board.
"Some people seem to have it all wrong, there is a certain protocol, just because you sit on the board just because you are the mayor doesn't mean one person can go out and call all the shots," Tony Burgess said. "We got a protocol we have to go through, its not governed by Navassa."
