An Opelika City Councilman is accused of using his position to profit financially.
The Opelika-Auburn News alleges City Council President Jerry Teel made money from printing services he sold to companies that do business with the city.
The O-A News reports that one of those companies, Environmental Services Group, paid Teel commission on three separate invoices.
In an telephone interview with WSFA 12, Teel denied any wrongdoing--and said he made less than 500 dollars on these deals.
City Attorney Guy Gunter released a statement Monday saying Opelika Mayor Gary Fuller- as required by his job- will report these allegations to the Ethics Commission.
Gunter adds the that fact Mr. Teel did business with these companies does not mean he did anything illegal.
