A called Starkville Board of Aldermen meeting Tuesday brought full circle a weeks-long struggle between some board members and City Clerk Lesa Hardin.
During Tuesdayâ€™s meeting, the board approved allowing the city clerk to execute payroll and claims disbursements without prior board approval, so long as the checks bore the mayorâ€™s or the majority of the aldermenâ€™s signatures, as well as the city clerkâ€™s. The measure rescinded a board July 15 board vote in executive session, which required aldermen to approve all funds, regardless of the source, before the city clerk could disburse them.
