ASHLAND- The Ashland Board of Aldermen is set to meet Friday at 6 to consider the reinstatement of Jeff Anderson into his Ward Two Alderman Position.

Anderson was suspended from his position on September 16 and was not given any reasoning behind the decision by Mayor Gene Rhorer or the Ashland Board of Aldermen. The decision was reached in a closed meeting without Anderson present.

On October 11, Anderson filed a lawsuit against the city claiming that neither the Board of Alderman nor the mayor had the authority to suspend.

KOMU 8 located documents that stated, "Because there is no statute, ordinance, rule, etc. authorizing the City of Ashland to suspend an elected official, any such suspension is done in violation of the rights of Relator (Anderson)."

Anderson's suspension comes after months of turmoil in the city of Ashland including six resignations in the last five months.

The latest of these was the resignation of Mayor Gene Rhorer on October 9, less than three months after taking the position. Rhorer rescinded his resignation less than 24 hours after submitting it and kept his role as mayor.

Anderson's hearing is scheduled for Monday night.
