Bay St. Louis mayor pays back city debt

An overt admission from Bay St. Louis Mayor Les Fillingame came Monday afternoon. The two-term mayor admitted to recently paying back money the state auditor’s office said had to be paid back to the city.

Fillingame said he wrote a personal check for more than $780 to cover a pay raise he recently granted to members of the city fire department before getting approval from the city council.
