Ellisville council impeaches mayor

The city of Ellisville is without a mayor.  That's because the city council voted 5-to-1 to impeach Adam Paul Monday evening.  

Mayor Paul and his attorney Chet Pleban left before the final vote. They have maintained for weeks that the impeachment hearings and deliberation were just for show -- that the council's decision was a foregone conclusion based on Paul's opposition to using tax incentives to build a new Walmart.  

But former mayor, Councilman Matt Pirrello denies that and tells McGraw in the Morning here on the Big 550 although he's not a fan of tax increment financing--he would still vote in favor of the Walmart TIF.

Matt Pirrello says, "As a responsible leader for my community, I cannot sit back and let my municipality go broke standing on principle."  

Before taking the impeachment vote, the council found Paul guilty on six charges of violating the city's charter.  

Paul says he'll ask a St. Louis County judge to set aside the impeachment until the newly elected city council takes office April 17th so that the new council can make the decision.
