No fireworks at Belville Commission meeting, just cake
BELVILLE, NC (WWAY) — The Belville Board of Commissioners met Monday night and things went smoothly. This is the first meeting since Belville Mayor Jack Batson filed charges against Commissioner Joe Breault.
Batson claims Breault has threatened him, charges Breault denies. Neither man would speak to us on camera about the dispute.
Commissioners may not be talking, but a handful of residents addressed the commission on the disagreement.
Roberta Fitzpatrick sums up the sentiment.
“These last few weeks when we’ve read those articles about this little dispute between two of our board members it’s just dragged the town down.”
It wasn’t an unpleasant meeting in fact there was a cake. Belville is celebrating it’s 35-th birthday and everyone could agree on wishing the town well.
