After weeks of upset residents speaking out and demanding a recall of their mayor, an attempt to reverse some of the controversy goes to no avail.
Councilman Earl Grey places a resolution to try and get former city Manager Ron Goulart's job back.
Grey motioned for the resolution, but it failed due to no second motion.
The crowd wasn't pleased, but Grey says he wasn't surprised.
"Had I got a second, I would liked to have explained what Mr. Goulart's qualifications were and his experience with the city. And hopefully change their mind but I didn't get the opportunity," Grey said.
New councilman Clay Kissner felt the need to explain his role in all the controversy.
"It doesn't take a seasoned politician to know that this ain't normal," said Kissner, "and I want yall to know that I'm doing everything I can do to make this better."
During the citizen's address to the council Mayor Lynn Long threw out two people in the crowd for what he called outbursts.
Several other residents followed out as well, then they began to protest outside where the council could see them.
"I think the meeting and the end of it pretty well speaks for what shape this city is in right now. It's not a good feeling," said Grey.
The council also voted on the interim city manager's income of $3,000 a month.
Councilmen Grey and Kissner voted against it making it a tie.
Mayor Long broke the tie to approve the income.
