Lancaster City Council votes to remove mayor from office

LANCASTER — Lancaster City Council voted 6-0 Saturday morning to remove Mayor Brenda Powers from office. A 90-minute public hearing took testimony from witnesses, including City Clerk Shari Lane, who said the mayor has created a hostile work environment at city hall. But Powers, 67, said the testimony failed to demonstrate misconduct on her part.
