LELAND, NC (WWAY) — While some might have expected a quiet meeting of the Leland Town Council Thursday night, it did start with some fireworks. A group of residents came out to speak in favor of fired Police Chief Tim Jayne.

Mayor Brenda Bozeman feels sentiment in the town is divided on the Jayne issue and she would not comment on his firing or appeal.

Town Manager David Hollis feels the town is moving ahead. ”I think things are getting better, we’re moving forward.” When asked about the group who spoke in favor of Tim Jayne, Hollis said. “Everybody is entitled their opinion.”

David Hollis would not comment on the appeals process or what Tim Jayne had to say in their meeting, Hollis has 15 business days to review Jayne’s appeal. He then must give Jayne his decision in writing.
