ELLISVILLE, Mo. -- The Ellisville City Council deadlocked over a proposal to reinstate the former mayor, who was ousted last month for violating the city charter.
The council tied on a vote Wednesday to reverse ex-Mayor Adam Paul’s removal from office. The vote came after several residents asked the council to reinstate Paul.
Paul, who was elected last year, was ousted by a previous city council for failing to control meetings, illegally trying to have the city attorney fired, giving city employees illegal orders and other offenses.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Paul still could return to office if he prevails in a lawsuit he filed last month.
