Mayor Mike Houston is back from an out-of-state vacation… and returns to face scorching criticism and big decisions.
The mayor is under fire from some aldermen for leaving on his scheduled trip as the police department file shredding scandal is heating up.
And the mayor himself could be on the hot seat when the City Council discusses the handling of the scandal at a special meeting Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the mayor still has to name an interim police chief and find a new corporation counsel to replace the officials who stepped aside as fallout from the controversy mounted.
Mayor Houston is scheduled to appear this morning on 970 WMAY’s “Jim Leach Show” to talk more about the issue. That’s set for 6:40am.
