It will be West. Judge exec. croonie who got what they wanted. Now the county and city can be run by the same bunch. Kind of funny.

Yes Barbourville looks great, but what would have been wrong with doing things right instead of making a mess out of the spending.

I'd say this is something that the rest of the council hadn't even considered. West talked them all into doing this and they followed along with his lead. I bet if each and everyone of them will think back that it was West who initiated and made the calls to them to do something about the Mayor. Not that it wouldn't warranted but it wasn't done for the good of the city.

This was all done by Hall and West to take control of the City as well. They want 4 more years to completely take control and get everything they can out of the county and city without anyone else's hands in the pot. They already have everything in place so just sit back and watch what happens.

The council apparently knew this was going on since 2007. If I am not mistaken they said he's the Mayor what can we do. You could have done what you did yesterday that is what you could have done. What is the difference between now and then, maybe getting caught or election time . People get a back bone and stop letting the people of this poor county down.
The Mayor did wrong, in my opinion he should have resigned. Does he think what he does is ok and that everyone should agree and get over it.
As for Hall and West who know?
It's terrible when you have so many that cannot keep their hand off the money. For God's sake can't we put anyone in office that you can trust. I am ashamed of them ALL>

This sounds like someone who has really thought about what is going on around here. I'm beginning to see what is happening now. We certainly need to vote out Hall.

At least Sherman and the rest of the council had the balls to hold the mayor accountable for ripping off the city and asked for his resignation tonight at the council meeting. Sherman was the top vote getter of the six, so yes, I think he should be appointed mayor after next Tuesdays impeachment proceedings until the citizens of the city decide who their next mayor will be.
Do you have some kinda proof that he ripped the City off ? No you do not and neither does the Council or the auditor, actually neither auditor found any money missing. If you are going to accuse someone of something then produce the evidence for what you are accusing someone of . Idiot

If the Council think the City needs money then why do they continue to take the money they get for what is not even a part time job. They work one hour a month and get $100 for that hour plus they get Insurance which cost the city $600.00 plus so thats $700.00 or so for one hour a month. One Council member was quoted saying that they have been there 14 years....do the math, if this council has got insur for the past 14 years thats $700 times 6, times 12 , times 14 equals $705,600.00 . 3/4 of a Million dollars, I'm pretty sure if the city had this back they prob wouldnt be in financial trouble. Plus two diff audits one being a forensic audit couldnt find any money missing. Also its the Councils Job to know everything thats going on in the City, and to bring most of these things / projects to a vote...where were the Council this whole time ? Go think about it .
