Council members considered seven counts of misconduct in voting for the impeachment. On four of the counts, the council voted unanimously. In the three other counts, a majority voted to oust the sitting mayor.
Mayor Fountain-Henderson can appeal the decision. She says the impeachment proceedings are the result of a political feud. She and the council have been at odds over city employees and perks since she was elected in April 2015.
A news conference is planned for Wednesday to release more information.
