KENNESAW, Ga. (AP) -- A Kennesaw resident has filed an ethics complaint against the city's mayor after a dispute over a website.

The Marietta Daily Journal reports that Mark Harris is a frequent critic of Kennesaw Mayor Mark Matthews and filed the complaint with the Kennesaw Ethics Board on Tuesday. Harris says Matthews used the city attorney's services to send a cease-and-desist letter about a website that Harris operates. The letter says the site impersonates Matthews by using his name as its title and web address.

At a recent city council meeting, Matthews said some residents believed statements on the site were coming from him.

The board has 60 days to conduct a hearing after receiving a complaint.
