FALMOUTH, KY (FOX19) -

Several Falmouth city council members are voicing their concerns over actions Mayor Elonda Hinson has taken since being elected.

“It’s a lack of leadership really,” said Councilman Sebastian Ernst.

"There’s no chain of command here anymore. Usually when there’s a mayor she delegates power to the department heads and the department heads can control their departments… that’s just non-existent right now.”

Ernst asked the mayor to resign earlier this week.

Other council members are now concerned about her treatment of city employees.

They say they have received letters from employees, past and present, alleging the mayor abused and threatened their positions.

“Our concern, and especially with [me personally] is the employees’ safety and their rights,” Councilwoman April DeFalco said.

City Council will meet again at 6 p.m. Thursday.

They are expected to launch an investigation into the mayor’s conduct while in office and dealings with other city employees.

“Lack of leadership, lack of chain of command and it’s just overwhelmingly obvious that there’s harassment in the city of Falmouth,” said Councilwoman Amy Hitch.
