No fireworks at Belville Commission meeting, just cake


BELVILLE, NC (WWAY) -- The Belville Board of Commissioners met Monday night, and things went smoothly. It was the first meeting since Belville Mayor Jack Batson filed charges against Commissioner Joe Breault.

Batson claims Breault has threatened him; charges Breault denies. Neither man would speak to us on camera about the dispute.

Commissioners may not be talking, but a handful of residents addressed the commission on the disagreement.

"These last few weeks when we've read those articles about this little dispute between two of our board members, it's just dragged the town down," Roberta Fitzpatrick said.

It wasn't an unpleasant meeting. In fact there was a cake. Belville is celebrating its 35th birthday, and everyone could agree on wishing the town well.
