The Abbeville City Council will consider a motion during its meeting tonight to reinstate its former parks and recreation director.
Councilman Francis Touchet, Jr., placed the motion on the agenda.
As we reported on Friday, the council last week voted 3-2 to oust Jerry Smith. This move came even though Smith received a positive six-month evaluation from the mayor.
Residents furious with the council's move began a recall petition against Councilman Wayne Landry, who cast the third and deciding vote to remove Smith.
KATC's Kari Beal will be at the meeting tonight LIVE at 5 and 6.
