Barbourville City Council votes to remove mayor

The Barbourville City Council voted to remove Mayor Thompson in public hearing tonight.

All six council members asked Mayor David Thompson to step down last week, after claims of financial mismanagement in a city audit.

During the hearing, both sides told their side of the story and then it was left to a vote.

Mayor Thompson told us earlier he had no intentions of stepping down.
