SEBASTIAN, Fla. — Voters in Sebastian voted to remove three council members from office Tuesday.

In April, Charles Mauti, Damien Gilliams, and Pamela Parris were accused of holding an illegal meeting to try to vote to terminate the city attorney, city manager, and city clerk. They also tried to vote to remove the mayor from his position and replace him with Gilliams.
