Bauxite Alderman Mona Struble was not cited for harassment although a complaint against her was filed recently by Brian Baber.
The report was filed Sept. 4 with the Saline County Sheriff's Office.

Lt. Scott Courtney wrote in the original report that Brian Baber alleged that John Baber and Struble have been harassing him since early January.
