Edwardsville mayor rebuffed

May 4, 2006

The Edwardsville City Council delivered a stinging rebuff to Mayor Stephanie Eickhoff Wednesday, overturning her earlier decision to suspend City Administrator Doug Spangler.

Eickhoff suspended Spangler Tuesday morning and had police escort him out of City Hall.

But the Council turned the tables at a special meeting at 8:30 a.m. the next day.

Following a short executive session, the Council passed a resolution that said Eickhoff had exceeded her authority.

The Council called upon the mayor "to terminate her objectionable behavior directed toward our fellow citizens and the Staff of the City."
