Kansas: Judge to rule on Basehor mayor recall

A Judge is set to decide on whether to allow the recall of Basehor Mayor Terry Hill to move forward (mayor is arguing that petition was too vague and the grounds were insufficient for a recall). The Judge is looking to put the recall on the ballot on Feb. 28, the same day as the recall of  Basehor City Council members Dennis Mertz and Iris Dysart. If the decision is delayed, the City Council recalls will go forward. Interesting point here -- if the two are removed, the mayor appoints their replacements (subject to approval by the remaining council members).

The mayor is accused of misusing public funds connected to purchases of a scanner and coffee pot with city funds, as well as health benefits and a severance payment to the city administrator.
