Censure of Abilene city council member fails

ABILENE, Texas(KRBC/KTAB) - During an executive session, Abilene City Council voted on the censure of Councilman Steve Savage.

This follows comments he made toward another city employee on a Facebook post that were taken as offensive.

Mayor Williams explained the council's options, then called for the censure of Savage.

Donna Albus seconded the censure, while councilman Krietler voted no. Savage abstained from voting.

KRBC/KTAB does not know if he was required to abstain, but that left the motion with only 5 votes, therefore, it failed.
