Ellisville officials are dropping some of the charges against their embattled mayor, Adam Paul.

Last week, the city council had adopted an 11 page impeachment document that charged Paul with violating the city's charter.

The charges also included swearing and drinking on the job. The council voted Wednesday night to drop those two charges from the impeachment proceedings.

City Attorney Paul Martin says he has evidence that both are true, but has learned that neither is an impeachable offense.

Mayor Paul refutes all of the charges, claiming they all stem from his disagreements with the council over a controversial Walmart TIF.

Ellisville Mayor Adam Paul has been suspended pending the outcome of an impeachment hearing.

The City Council voted unanimously Wednesday evening to move forward with a litany of charges against the mayor that include disclosing confidential information and drinking on the job.

Dozens of residents had attended the special council meeting to show support for the Mayor, but it didn't sway the council.

A hearing was scheduled for March 20 to decide whether Paul should be permanently removed from office.

Mayor Paul has been at odds with most of the council over a controversial Walmart TIF since he was elected last April.

When the Ellisville City Council members meet Wednesday, they're expected to levy charges against Mayor Adam Paul that range from disclosing employee salaries to using city resources to help a campaign contributor, and drinking on the job.

The 11 page resolution calling for Paul’s removal was drawn up by City Attorney Paul Martin after the council voted 5-2 for impeachment proceedings. Martin told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the mayor's improprieties began right after he took office last April.

That's also when Paul began officially fighting with most council members over a controversial Walmart TIF. The TIF passed, but is now tied up in court.

The impeachment drive follows an effort by some residents to get council members who'd supported the TIF recalled from office. That effort fell flat when a St. Louis County judge ruled that the city's recall provisions were unconstitutional.

If the council votes to adopt the impeachment resolution at Wednesday night's meeting, Paul would be suspended for 45 days, pending the outcome of an investigation.

The Ellisville City Council is moving forward with an effort to oust Mayor Adam Paul. The council voted 5-2 Wednesday night to have the city attorney draft an impeachment resolution against Paul. Only Paul and Councilwoman Linda Reel opposed the resolution.

The move comes just two days after the Ellisville Charter Enforcement Commission unanimously recommended that the impeachment complaint be thrown out.

Ironically, it's Martin who will present the resolution at the March 6th council meeting.

The specifics of the complaint against the mayor haven't been released, but Martin has clashed frequently with other council members over a controversial Walmart TIF that was passed last year. Martin had been elected last spring after campaigning against the TIF.

The mayor's attorney, Chet Pleban, says the impeachment effort will be met with litigation.
