Palermo’s VP position up for City Council vote on May 2
The Omaha City Council will hold a hearing on Tuesday, May 2nd, to decide whether to permanently remove Councilmember Vinny Palermo from his position as council vice president. Palermo was temporarily removed from his position last week by a vote from the City Council. Although his seat on the Council will not be affected by the vote, Palermo’s future in politics remains uncertain due to calls for his resignation and a recall effort.
Meanwhile, the Douglas County Board of Commissioners will also have a meeting on Tuesday. The board’s criminal justice committee will receive an update on the pretrial release program operated by the corrections department. The County Board meeting starts at 9 a.m. and the Omaha City Council meeting starts at 2 p.m. Interested parties can view the full agendas on the county and city websites.
