Council votes to oust Barbourville mayor

BARBOURVILLE- City Council members in Barbourville have voted unanimously to remove the mayor from office.

The move by officials in the southeastern Kentucky city came on the heels of a state audit that found several poor financial practices since Mayor David Thompson took office in 2007.

Joe Childers, an attorney representing council members, said the vote Tuesday night was taken "to restore the trust of the taxpayers."

Thompson's attorney, Billy Taylor, said his client didn't have enough time to prepare for the hearing and would appeal the decision.
