SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - A special executive session of the Shreveport City Council to discuss the fate of three fired community development inspectors has begun.
The meeting called by Shreveport Mayor Pro-Tem Ron Webb began at 1:00 pm
The three workers, Ray Jones, Jackie Mandigo and Daniel LaCour, had been reinstated by the city's personnel board but have yet to return to work because of a restraining order issued by a Caddo district court judge.
According to Webb, the city's personnel board violated state law when it made the decision to reinstate the inspectors because it was done without a vote and without giving 24 hours notice to the public.
The reinstatements of the three inspectors remains on hold until the lawsuit is resolved.
