Proponents say they will continue recall efforts against three councilmen despite the City Council's recent settlement with former City Administrator Bruce Spragg, who was fired in August.
Recall notices were filed with the city clerk's office last week against Mayor Robert A. Philipp, Vice Mayor Gregory Slaughter and Councilman Larry Leonard by recall leaders angry over the firing.
A day after the filing, the council agreed to pay Spragg $63,500 as a severance settlement. The council also rescinded its firing of Spragg, who then submitted his resignation.
Spragg, 57, announced Aug. 13 that he planned to retire in March. The council then asked him to resign; when he refused, they fired him.
