ELLISVILLE, Mo. (KMOX) -  Ellisville city council members could vote tonight on changing the city’s charter.

It’s a move that could potentially save their jobs.

This stems from the contentious battle over a proposed Walmart on Manchester Road, which many residents adamantly oppose.

Those opponents have Ellisville mayor Adam Paul on their side.

“I know of multiple people putting in multiple hours to fight this project and to fight the petition recall effort,” Paul has said. “The timing’s just odd.”

Five of the city’s six councilmen want to amend Ellisville’s charter to require a recall of elected officials only for a specified cause.

They’re hoping to get that proposal placed on the November ballot.
