Former Mayor Pirrello Will Lead Ellisville Council Meeting

The council member and former mayor will act as mayor pro tem in Mayor Adam Paul's suspension.

Ellisville City Council Member Matt Pirrello is slated to act as mayor pro tem during Mayor Adam Paul's suspension, with a hefty agenda for the council meeting Wednesday.

The meeting March 6 is the first regular council meeting without Paul at the helm since the council initiated impeachment efforts last month.

Read more of Patch's coverage of the impeachment here.

Wednesday's agenda contains several items, one of which is an amended preliminary resolution regarding Paul's removal from office. The only additions to the 11-page resolution are charges that Paul recorded recent closed meetings. 

The council will vote to adopt the amended resolution Wednesday. A work session begins at 6:40 p.m. with the regular meeting starting at 7 p.m. at Ellisville City Hall.

Mike K: Your comments are amusing, but dimwitted. Individuals like you, and others that post hateful diatribes concerning the city, instantly cite your constitutional rights whenever you feel you've been wronged. And rightly so. Yet whenever constitutional principles, (e.g. City Charter) directly contradict your version of reality, your ilk lack the guts to admit it. None of you have a mandate, you don't represent the Will of the People, and your ignorance of the legal tenents that preside over ALL cities in the state is shocking. So, from here on out, lets measure suscess according to the number of legal challenges won. Any time you win a court challenge, post a comment. I will check back to see the results. But something tells me I will be waiting a long time

You apparently weren't at the meeting tonight to witness Mr. Martin submitting amendments verbally to the City Clerk and changing the resolution before the council and published to the public. Everyone was quite baffled and the new Mayor Pro Temp's allowing Mr. Martin to propose legislation to the council verbally, changing the published resolution substantially, and then voting on it. Even the council didn't know what they voted on. If the dysfunctional council remains dysfunctional after the removal of Mayor Adam Paul, then it should be clear that the Mayor wasn't the problem. And I understand perfectly clearly the requirements of the City Council to publish with at least 24 hours notice all ordinances and resolutions on the agenda before the council. That is NOT what happened tonight. That is shocking. The only thing that will be "a long time" will be the taxpayers of Ellisville paying first for the council to bankrupt the city trying to remove the Mayor, and then again when they face and lose the civil and possibly criminal charges for doing so.

More sad news for the City of Ellisville.

I hope the Patch can obtain a copy of the actual resolution that was passed after City Attorney Martin introduced additional verbal amendments that significantly altered the posted amended resolution.
