Forest Park URA in turmoil as Mayor Butler demands members resign

Forest Park Mayor Angelyne Butler has sent letters to all members of the Urban Redevelopment Agency, alleging they were derelict in their duties by not approving financing for the new fire station on Forest Parkway, Starr Park improvements and a "possible" new police station. She told the members to appear at a Feb. 4 hearing before her and the City Council to answer the allegations. Butler said she would attend the URA's Jan. 30 meeting.
