The High Point Enterprise reports Mayor Bernita Sims —already under an SBI investigation for passing worthless checks — owes the city hundreds of dollars in utility bills, some of which are nearly a year past due.

HPE also reports ” that city funds were used to pay for the airfare of one of Sims’ sisters who accompanied her to Boston for a National League of Cities event in November 2012.” Sims has repaid those funds, but only after prodding from City Manager Strib Boynton.

Meanwhile, Greensboro Mayor Robbie Perkins’ alimony hearing has been delayed, but his foreclosed downtown Centre Pointe condo will be auctioned off as scheduled.
