SUNSET HILLS, Mo. (AP) _ The Sunset Hills Board of Aldermen has delayed action that could lead to the removal of its mayor, who was charged with two felonies after colliding with a cyclist while driving his car.

The aldermen met behind closed doors for two hours on Tuesday but adjourned without acting on proposals that could remove Mayor Mark Furrer from office. Alderman Dee Baebler says the measures will be on the board’s Nov. 11 agenda.

Furrer was charged Oct. 1 with second-degree assault and property damage. He has denied wrongdoing and said the cyclist caused the collision after running a stop sign.

The cyclist has told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that Furrer yelled at him to get off the road and intentionally hit him.

Furrer says he won’t step down.
