Two Fall River City Councilors have submitted a resolution for the next City Council meeting where councilors would vote on Mayor Correia’s appointments and removals.

The resolution, submitted by Councilors Shawn Cadime and Pam Laliberte-Lebeau, has been placed on Tuesday’s City Council agenda according to Laliberte-Lebeau.

The submitted resolution comes in the wake of Mayor Correia’s decision to remove Paul Coogan, who challenged the Mayor in Tuesday’s recall election, and Mark Costa, a supporter of Coogan, from the Durfee Building Committee and keep them on as advisors.

Due to the move, Coogan has stated he will be running for mayor in the upcoming election.

Mayor Correia discussed the decision on the Dan Yorke Show this week .

The resolution states that due to the fact that the Mayor is the sole appointee on many boards and committees, that the City Council should ratify such appointments and removals on boards and committees that have policy making and fiduciary responsibilities.

Earlier this week, Cadime sent a letter to City Council President Cliff Ponte requesting a special meeting be held to take a Council vote to determine if Correia is able to perform his responsibilities as the Mayor of Fall River.

    Wow these two are pathetic. Every move that Jasiel makes will be followed by a resolution from a council with poor leadership. Cliff Ponte should be quashing non-sensical ideas such as those put forth by these two complete haters. Get back to the work of the city, and stop with this childish garbage. Enjoy the rest of your limited time on the council you fools, we the voters see right through this garbage!
