JENNINGS (KMOV.com) -

Jennings held a meeting Monday night to begin impeachment proceedings against Mayor Yolanda Fountain-Henderson.

Fountain-Henderson is accused of committing 19 acts of misconduct over a 9-month period. The accusations include using city money to fix private property, accessing private personnel records and towing cars in the city without notice.

The hearing is similar to a trial with witnesses being questioned and cross-examined.

Fountain-Henderson said the impeachment proceedings are the result of a political feud that she has with two city council members and insists she has done nothing wrong.

Another meeting on the topic will be held Saturday.
