Southaven mayor to use reimbursement system

Posted: Updated:

 (WMC-TV) - In the Mid-South, one mayor is making some major changes Friday.

The new Southaven Mayor Darren Musselwhite will no longer use the city's credit card.

This declaration comes after former mayor Greg Davis' misspending scandal. The state auditor told Davis he was to reimburse the city of Southaven over $170,000.

In order to prevent even the possibility of this reoccurring, Musselwhite plans to use the reimbursement system instead of a credit card. This system is actually required by the state of Mississippi.

All future mayors will be required to use the reimbursement system instead of a city-issued credit card as well.
