    Summerville Police Chief Stan Moley announced yesterday that the Georgia Bureau of Investigation is investigating missing and unaccounted funds in the account for the Santa in Uniform Program. Channel 12 from Chattanooga was at the Summerville City Council meeting last night to cover initial reactions from the community to the news, and the issue was raised multiple times at Monday evening’s Summerville City Council meeting.

    On Friday, chief Mosely was alerted that an undisclosed amount of money was unaccounted for in the department’s bookkeeping records. He immediately called for the GBI’s help in tracking down those missing funds.

    At last night’s meeting, Summerville mayoral candidate Chris Nixon brought up controversy, which had only been broken by the Summerville News for a few hours, during an exchange with mayor Harvey and councilman Buddy Windle. AM 1180 will bring you details from that exchange soon.

    At the request of Nixon, Chattanooga’s Channel 12 was on the scene at the meeting to cover the council’s reaction to the meeting. Nixon said he called multiple local stations to attract to attention to what he saw as failures in the leadership. Channel 12 spoke with Nixon, council candidate ‘Preacher’ Mack, and local resident Pam Albert.

    Santa In Uniform provides Christmas shopping trips to economically disadvantaged children in Chattooga County. Fountain told The News she would wait until later before making a comment.

    Though originally only suspended without pay by Mosley, longtime city employee and Municipal Court Clerk, Stacy Fountain, has resigned. Fountain controlled for the Santa in Uniform and other accounts. She had been with the SPD almost 20 years.
