Columbus City Council releases statement reacting to lawsuits filed against them

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

The Columbus City Council released a statement today, November 18, reacting to lawsuits filed against them by four elected officials over their budgets.

The statement says "The council has complied with Georgia Law and the Columbus Charter in appropriating budgets for these elected officials," adding that "Budgets for each were adopted after a thorough deliberative process."

Four elected officials including Sheriff John Darr and Marshal Greg Countryman, filed suit against the council and Columbus mayor claiming they broke the law when they approved budgets less than they proposed.
