Berger hotel claim checks out, but commissioner absent ahead of censure, amotion debate

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New Hanover County Commissioners met this afternoon to prepare for Monday’s meeting, where they plan to discuss ousting Brian Berger.

Among their issues with Berger is the county’s claim he owes money for hotel rooms he did not use at conferences in 2001.

Berger says he did use the rooms, for all the days he was supposed to. Today one of the hotels confirmed Berger’s version to WWAY.

Commissioners, though, say the issue goes well beyond a fight over money.

“Tough times call for tough actions, and this board is not going to sit by and see our staff continue to be harassed,” Vice Chair Beth Dawson said. “We are responsible for a safe, professional, non-harassing work place environment.”

County spokesmen Charles Smith says no one is allowed to comment on Berger’s issues until Monday after the meeting.

Berger was not at today’s agenda briefing.
