Russellville City Council Removes Plant Board Members

Russellville's City Council decides to remove three members of the city's Electric Plant Board.

The contentious inter-governmental fight between the council and the EPB has been going on for more than a year, and finally ended in a four to two vote by the council Tuesday night.

The hearings were the culmination of allegations of misspending and abuse of power by three EPB members, but the EPB's council says no crimes had been committed.

Reports show that as of March 31 2004, the issue has cost Russellville and its taxpayers nearly $340,000
