Commissioners move on as Berger misses first meeting since arrest
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New Hanover County Commissioners met today for their first time since Brian Berger was arrested again last month for DWI, but there was again an empty seat at the table.
As commissioners met for their first agenda briefing of 2014, Commissioner Brian Berger was once again noticeably absent.
After the meeting started without him, WWAY reached out to the commissioner, but he has yet to respond.
The other commissioners went on without him, and discussed the effect that federal flood insurance reform will have on the county’s beach towns. They also discussed the sales tax situation and whether they should charge local vendors sales tax for online sales. Another topic of discussion was the state’s new seven-percent entertainment tax.
We hope to talk with commissioners about the latest issues with Berger after the meeting.
