FARMINGTON -- For the third time, a pretrial conference for a former Syracuse city councilman charged with using his position to secure privileges has been continued.

Former City Councilman David Matthew Kimmel, 35, charged with a class A misdemeanor, had a hearing set for Monday in 2nd District Court.

Judge John R. Morris announced in court that the hearing will be continued until Nov. 26 based on an agreement with Kimmel's attorney, Ed Brass, and Davis County Attorney Troy Rawlings.

The charge centers around Kimmel's sharing of inside information on a $730,000 property purchase made by the North Davis Sewer District and a $3,000 finder's fee he was reported to receive prior to declining it.

Kimmel served as Syracuse city's representative on the NDSD board for about one year. Kimmel resigned as city councilman in February after the charges were filed.
