BELLEVUE, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska State Patrol has ticketed a newly elected Bellevue city councilman for an electrical license violation.

Omaha television station KETV-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2gna5rn ) that the investigation stems from a complaint filed by DC Electric of Bellevue against councilman Pat Shannon. Shannon was elected to the council in this month’s election.

Dave Compton, the company’s owner, says Shannon hired his firm to install electric panels in a newly renovated building. Compton says that once the work was done more permits were issued to DC Electric without his knowledge. Compton says he didn’t want his company liable for workers he did not hire.

Shannon says he paid the company about $50,000 for services. He says he met with the patrol and was told it was “no big deal.”
