AUGUSTA, GA (WRDW/WAGT) -- It's a controversy that just continues.

The Augusta-Richmond County Commission voted 6-4 on Tuesday to
remove a decal from Mayor Hardie Davis' SUV, a Chevrolet Tahoe.

The decal, which is an oval shaped logo that says "Augusta, Georgia," was affixed to the SUV.

Georgia State Law requires cities to have a decal, emblem or some sort of marking logo on city cars. There are exceptions to this requirement, among them include law enforcement and prosecutors.

The controversy embroiled city attorney Andrew McKenzie, who commissioners voted in favor to fire back in mid-April.

McKenzie believed the mayor could fall into the category with law enforcement and prosecutors.

More on this story as it develops.
