The Jacksonville City Council Rules Committee voted to replace City Planning Commissioners Lisa King and Joey Mckinnon Tuesday afternoon. The matter now passes to the full Council.

Mayor Lenny Curry asked both members to resign mid-term, saying their goals do not align with his, but they refused.

Councilman Tommy Hazouri, a former Democratic Jacksonville mayor, was the lone member to vote against replacing them. He says they did nothing wrong and should be allowed to finish their terms.
