Florida: Appellate Court hears arguments in Haines City recall
An appellate panel is heard oral arguments in the two Haines City commissioners recalls. A lower court judge blocked the recall from taking place, claiming it did not meet the malfeasance standards.
The recall was started after the commission approved a $312K severance package for the city manager, who then filed for unemployment insurance. The court may be looking at whether the manager was actually a city employee at the time the compensation package was approved.
