BAY ST. LOUIS, Miss. (AP) - The Bay St. Louis City Council has rejected a nearly $10,000 bill submitted by former city attorney Donald Rafferty for services he said he provided the city in August, the month after the council terminated his contract.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2dlP6E0) the council voted 6-0 Tuesday to deny payment to Rafferty.

Rafferty submitted an invoice Sept. 1 for 39.6 hours of service at a rate of $250 per hour, totaling $9,900. Among other things, his claimed services included conferences with the mayor, telephone calls and preparing files for transfer to new city attorney Trent Favre.

Neither the mayor nor Rafferty, who attended Tuesday’s meeting, said anything at the time the issue came up.

Rafferty still works as the city prosecutor.
