The process is unfolding after a private citizen, Robert Solis, submitted a signed affidavit to the city secretary – which is an official complaint against the mayor.
According to the city charter, after Solis receives the petition forms, he will have 30 days to collect 300 signatures.
Solis planned to submit this affidavit Wednesday morning but was denied entrance at first.
CHANNEL 5 NEWS followed him as he entered city hall Wednesday morning and was denied entrance at first.
