PEVELY, MO (KTVI) – Pevely Mayor John Knobloch steps down from his job citing medical reasons.
The Mayor has been surrounded by a huge controversy over putting family members on the city's cell phone plan, in essence having taxpayers pay his wife's cell phone bills for years, and later adding other family members onto the city's cell phone plan.
The You Paid For It team questioned a new deal the Mayor is getting from aldermen. They agreed to let him pay $3,600 to settle the cell phone matter that, even though the past City Administrator Terry Thomas says the bill should have been more like $6,000 to $7,000 in cell phone charges.
On top of that Pevely Aldermen decided to pay the Mayor $3,200 for the private lawyer he hired to fight the city.
Residents are angry over that deal.
You Paid For It confronted the Mayor, and an Alderman who supported the questionable deal with the Mayor.
