After publicly releasing the results of an investigation into alleged misconduct by Arroyo Grande Mayor Jim Hill, members of the City Council have asked him to relinquish his seat on the South San Luis Obispo County Sanitation District’s board of directors.

The council voted 3-2 to request that Hill voluntarily give up his position as one of three members of the sanitation district’s board and appoint Arroyo Grande Mayor Pro Tem Tim Brown to serve in his place. Hill and Brown voted against the recommendation at the council’s Sept. 12 meeting. Councilmembers Caren Ray, Kristen Barneich, and Barbara Harmon voted in favor of it.
