Ellisville Taxpayers Burdened with $95,000 Impeachment Tab

ELLISVILE, Mo. (KMOX) — It’s cost tens of thousands to impeach the Ellisville Mayor and taxpayers can’t close the tab quite yet.

That’s because the legal appeals go on, which means the $95-thousand total for attorneys and a PR firm will likely escalate higher. That number comes from the invoices obtained by KMOX News.

Meantime, ousted Mayor Adam Paul is asking his allies on the newly elected council to overturn the previous council’s impeachment.

“We’re trying to give the city an opportunity to stop the bleeding now and put me back in office, so we can put this thing to bed once and for all,” Paul told KMOX News.

But, with the likelihood of that happening low, Paul is pressing on in the courts, hoping a judge sees what he’s been claiming — that the charges against him were frivolous.
