Cecil - A South Georgia mayor is accused of misusing city money.

Cecil Mayor Mike Yates allegedly took a loan out in the city's name but used the money for personal matters. According to the city attorney, the money was paid back and there is no criminal investigation.

Cecil City council will have a special called meeting Thursday night at 7:00 to discuss Yates' future as mayor.

He took office in 2000 and before that, served as Remerton Police Chief for six years.
