Attorney for Berger amotion appeal to cost thousands in taxpayer dollars

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — While a court is set to hear the appeal of Brian Berger’s amotion, the question arises about how much the county will spend on hiring an attorney for the case.

Monday night, New Hanover County Commissioner Jonathan Barfield told WWAY the county is expecting to spend at least $5,000 of taxpayer money on attorney fees. Barfield didn’t have an exact dollar amount on what the process will cost.

A judge will decide July 16th if the vote to use amotion to oust Berger from office was appropriate.
