Beckley Common Council to hire outside attorney in Mayor ethics investigation

BECKLEY (WVVA)- After the West Virginia Ethics Commission handed down a decision in the case, all eyes turned to the Beckley Common Council to see how they would react to the decision about Mayor Emmett Pugh.

While the council did not take a vote to force the Mayor out of office-- a motion was proposed to hire an outside attorney to get a second opinion on the matter.

The motion passed five to two and was met with opposition from those in the audience as well as Mayor Pugh.

The council has a list of outside attorneys to choose from and will now begin the selection process.
