Aberdeen electric department employee to be suspended with pay

In a meeting behind closed doors Thursday, it was determined that Aberdeen Electric Department employee Charles Hale will be suspended with pay.

Hale’s suspension stems from allegedly using city services (electricity) without paying for the service.

The meeting, held between Aberdeen Mayor Jim Ballard, Ward 1 Alderman Alonzo Sykes, Ward 2 Alderman Cloyd Garth, Ward 3 Alderman David Ewing, City Attorney Robert Faulks, Electric Department manager Adrian Garth and Electric Department warehouse manager Brian Sanders, was not made public knowledge even though a quorum of voting aldermen was present.
