469.010 Removal; hearing; notice.
For inefficiency or neglect of duty, or misconduct in office, a commissioner may be removed by the governing body of the municipality. The commissioner must be given a copy of the charges at least ten days prior to a hearing at which the commissioner has an opportunity to be heard in person or by counsel. When charges in writing have been preferred against a commissioner, pending final action thereon the governing body may temporarily suspend the commissioner. If it is found that those charges have not been substantiated, the commissioner shall immediately be reinstated in office. When any commissioner is removed, a record of the proceedings, together with the charges and findings thereon, shall be filed in the office of the clerk.
