Three of the ethics charges filed against Mayor Hugh Coomer by three city commissioners are still unheard, and testimony is planned to resume during the last week of August.
The remaining charges allege that Coomer: threatened the city manager's position during a private meeting; made an unauthorized appointment to the beautification committee after rejecting the Heart of Danville's recommendation; and submitted an intentional misrepresentation of the approved beautification committee plan for the use of $20,000 in grant money available through the Transportation Equity Act.
The hearing will resume at 9 a.m. on Aug. 25 in city hall.
The Danville Board of Ethics began hearing testimony on July 28, but because the hearing was held the same afternoon as a regularly scheduled City Commission meeting and apparently ran longer than expected, it was continued. The date of resumption was left undetermined due to scheduling conflicts.
The board was able to complete three hours of testimony on four charges, with attorneys calling five witnesses.
