City likely won’t pay legal bills for Melton

Mayor Frank Melton and his two former bodyguards did not get the financial help they were seeking Tuesday from the city to pay their attorney fees from a 2007 state trial.

And they likely never will.

Council member Margaret Barrett-Simon was absent from Tuesday’s City Council meeting when members deadlocked 3-3 on paying the fees. But if the issue comes up again – as one councilman says it will – she said she’d vote against.

Melton and Councilman Kenneth Stokes said they will continue to fight for the money.
