Special Agents from the Office of the State Auditor have presented civil demands to five current members of the Canton Municipal Utilities Board of Commissioners. Cleotha Williams, Charles Weems, L.C. Slaughter, Charles Morgan, and Cleveland Anderson were all served demands of $19,192.77, each.

The total amount for the demands against the commissioners is $95,963.85, which includes principal, interest, and investigative costs.

“The demands are related to Canton Municipal Utilities commissioners spending public funds to pay personal legal fees during a time they were not serving on the Canton Municipal Utilities Board of Commissioners,” said State Auditor Stacey Pickering.

Pickering added that the case will be delivered to the Attorney General of Mississippi for a civil suit if the subjects of the demand do not respond within thirty days.
