Carbonear's Ex-Mayor Appeal Set Over

The former mayor of Carbonear, Frank Butt, appeared in Supreme Court Wednesday morning.

Butt was removed from the position of mayor last month after an alleged conflict of interest.

He is appealing the decision.

The matter was set over to January 18th.

When Butt was on Council he had made a motion to demolish a building on a property adjacent to his business.

This raised concerns that the value of Butt’s property would increase if the structure was domolished.
