Almost two months after Councilman Gregory Reeves was booked into jail on a charge of theft by taking, the Dacula City Council has called for his resignation.
The decision to call for his resignation was made in executive session held during the May 1 council meeting. After the executive session ended, Mayor Jimmy Wilbanks presented the resolution which requests Reeves' resignation for violations of the City of Dacula code of ethics.
Reeves, the resolution states, "accrued charges for personal expenses in excess of $4,000 on his City of Dacula credit card" and "has been unwilling or unable to pay off" the charges. The failure to resolve the issue, the resolution explains, "violates the Code of Ethics of the City of Dacula and the laws of the state of Georgia."
The resolution, which was approved unanimously, will be delivered to Reeves by Dacula City Marshal Steve Cline.
