Now that it’s been looked at some more, additional questions have arisen in regards to a proposed procedure for removing members of the Keizer City Council.

When the topic was brought up last month, questions were immediately raised since it came days after city manager Chris Eppley chose John Teague as the new Keizer police chief. The proposed ordinance stated a councilor could be removed from office for interfering with administration. That led to speculation the policy was quickly thrown together in response to the police chief selection process.
