Effort to remove Port Isabel councilmembers goes to Cameron County court Tuesday

The Monitor reports today on an interesting situation with dueling motions to remove three Port Isabel, Texas councilmembers.  One member filed an agenda item requesting the removal of a fellow member for alleged delinquent taxes; subsequently, a motion was made to remove the original complainant as well as another member.  The latter two were in fact removed after a council vote, but they sued, alleging failure to follow charter procedures and due process before the removal. The hearing Tuesday should be to determine whether the council acted properly in removing the two members.
