Ethics panel won’t sanction Huttig's mayor

— The Arkansas Ethics Commission says the Huttig mayor likely broke state law when a city employee did landscaping work at his home, but said the mayor shouldn’t be sanctioned because the city has no written policy forbidding such actions.

The panel found that Mayor Tony Cole shouldn’t be sanctioned because there was no policy in place regarding the use of city equipment on private property.

A resident filed a complaint alleging that the mayor broke ethics laws when a municipal employee did cleanup landscaping work after Cole’s home burned down June 23.

The El Dorado News-Times reported that the ethics commission urged Huttig to adopt a written policy.

Cole says he’s on the right side of the law and that he wouldn’t do anything to harm the city.
