JOHNS CREEK, GA. – The Johns Creek City Council stunned those who stayed late at the June 17 council meeting when they announced after an executive session that they would initiate an investigation of Mayor Mike Bodker for conduct or actions that they refused to specify.
After the regular agenda was completed Monday night, the council members announced an executive session and retired to deliberate. After about 45minutes they returned and Councilman Randall Johnson made the announcement that the council would appoint an attorney from a firm outside the city to, “Investigate certain actions by the mayor.”
The vote was 5-0 to appoint an investigator. Councilwoman Kelly Stewart was absent on vacation.
Bodker had recused himself from the meeting once he discovered the purpose of the meeting. Bodker was invited to stay for the executive session, but reportedly declined saying he would not be present without being represented by legal counsel.
After the meeting, Bodker said he did not know what prompted the charges.
