Mayor Fired Over Plan to Annul Traffic Tickets

December 25, 1991| Associated Press

NIXA, Mo. — A mayor who proposed that $77,000 in traffic tickets be annulled as a symbol of compassion during the Christmas season has been removed from office.

The Board of Aldermen in Nixa, a southwestern Missouri town of 2,600 people, dismissed Mayor Luther Meadows on Monday on four charges of violating his oath of office. The mayor plans to sue, his lawyer said.

The board said Meadows also failed to sign warrant checks to pay for a new City Hall, left board meetings early and embarrassed town officials after his arrest for allegedly poking a sheriff's deputy in the chest.
