Southaven mayor Greg Davis seeks to block auditor from garnishing paycheck

Southaven Mayor Greg Davis, through attorney Steve Farese, sought a temporary restraining order Tuesday to prevent Mississippi Auditor Stacey Pickering from garnishing Davis’s paycheck to recover disputed debt.

The temporary order is part of a counter suit filed by Davis that also seeks to force Southaven to restore a $35,000 stipend the mayor had been paid for operating the city’s utility department. Aldermen cut the stipend in January after questions were raised about it.
