The Fall River City Council’s complaint and injunction involving their dispute with Mayor Correia has been rescheduled.
The council made the filings in hopes of removing Correia from his duties as mayor, however the hearing will now take place on Thursday.
The City Council’s representation KP Law stated that:
“The Council, while disfavoring the expenditure of municipal resources in what is already a turbulent time for the City, filed this action to safeguard the City, its finances, residents, visitors, and businesses.”
“The Council will continue to exercise the responsibilities provided to it under the Charter and take whatever action is necessary to protect the City.”
In response to the hearing, Mayor Correia’s representation stated that:
“While he is disappointed with the city council’s politically motivated conduct in this matter, undertaking its unlawful vote and commencing this misguided and wasteful lawsuit at great taxpayer expense, he looks forward to pursuing an active defense.”
