(KTVI) – The Wellston city council meets on Wednesday for the first time since a former mayor stole and later returned dozens of city paychecks.

The council is expected to elect a new mayor pro-tem tonight to replace Linda Whitfield, who was impeached earlier this spring. A court ruled she could not return to office. She caught heat last week for taking paychecks which she has since returned.

It’s unclear if she’ll face charges over it. One councilwoman told FOX 2 she thinks it was an act of revenge, but not criminal.
