A Forsyth County commissioner will face an ethics complaint in coming weeks.

On May 5 at 10:30 a.m., the Forsyth County Ethics Panel will meet for an investigatory review of a complaint filed by resident Rene Guidry against District 4 Commissioner Cindy Jones Mills.

The meeting will be held at the Forsyth County administration building in the commissioner’s conference room.

Neither Mills nor Guidry could be reached for comment as of press time. A county public meeting notice did not include details of why the complaint was filed.

Per a county ordinance, the ethics panel is made up of three randomly selected attorneys from a list maintained by the county who do not live or have an office in Forsyth or have any other conflicts of interest.

At the meeting, the panel will look at the evidence and decide whether a hearing is needed.

The last hearing of an ethics panel resulted in the dismissal of a complaint against Mills regarding a land parcel.
