Three Mathews supervisors came under fire during Tuesday night’s board meeting as Sheriff Mark Barrick and several board of zoning appeals members took them to task for recent comments they’ve made regarding various county issues.
The board also heard from commonwealth’s attorney Tom Bowen, who raised questions about board members’ apparent intention to use county funds to pay Mark and Candy Eubank to rebuild additions on their vacation home on Gwynn’s Island—additions that were removed under court order.
At the supervisors’ July meeting, the board voted unanimously to obtain quotes on the cost of replacing the demolished structure and to write a formal letter of apology to the Eubanks.
Sheriff Barrick said that he had asked two weeks earlier to be put on the board’s agenda for Tuesday’s meeting in order to discuss issues surrounding the investigation into supervisor Melissa Mason’s residency, but had been denied the opportunity by chairman Dave Jones.
