Fall River City Council on 11-6

The Fall River City Council set the stage Tuesday Night in Government Center for November 6th, when it will attempt again to perhaps remove Fall River Mayor Jasiel Correia II on a temporary basis from office, if 7 votes are found to throw into motion a provision in the City Charter, section 3-8, that allows council to allow a mayor a temporary leave for illness or for cause. 

In a new legal opinion from Corporation Counsul Joseph Macy, the former judge warns that an expensive legal battle could ensue, as Correia's defense lawyers have already indicated they will seek recourse on behalf of their client. 

Council could also ask Correia to resign, or cast a vote of no confidence. 

Council member Derek Viveiros was dealing with family issues last night, but left a written communication with Council President Cliff Ponte that asked that the matters be tabled until the first term council member was back in Fall River.
