Hodgenville City Council held a public hearing Thursday evening to hear allegations against Hodgenville Mayor Terry Cruse. The hearing is a step in the process of possibly removing Cruse, who is in his second term, from office.
The meeting began at 7 p.m. and was held in the sanctuary of the former First Baptist Church – which has been converted into City Hall. About 122 residents filled the pews. Mayor Cruse and his attorney, Ron Mather, and city council members with their attorney, Michelle Sparks, sat at tables on the stage with their backs to the audience.
