Beckley council won't pursue Pugh removal

BECKLEY (WVVA) - City council members have decided to stop legal proceedings against their mayor.

After a heated debate at the city council meeting in Beckley last week, a divided council sought legal advice, so Mayor Emmett Pugh would have to step down immediately.

This comes after Pugh agreed to step down at the end of the year as a settlement with the West Virginia Ethics Commission.

Council members say they want to focus their time and energy into finding a replacement for Pugh instead.
