Aldermen plan to censure Mayor Jimmy Poss Thursday night in a special called session of the city council, saying he violated the municipal charter’s nepotism ban by hiring his son. “Immediate family members shall not be hired by the city,” Alderman Gayla Hendrix quoted from the city charter during a meeting held this past Thursday in which the mayor was not present. “That is a clear violation of the charter and the city’s personnel policy.”
