[ARCHIVED] Statements from Mayor Emily Styron and from Zionsville Town Council


Mayor Emily Styron: 

I have received the opinion from the Court of Appeals affirming the Trial Court's Order. When multiple members of the Fire Department approached me with concerns about their leadership, as Town Executive, I took action on behalf of the best interests of the departmental staff. I sought a clear path for interpreting the reorganization documents. As Mayor, I am committed to continuing to meet with and work with both Fire Department leadership and members of the Town Council on behalf of our Town employees and the citizens of Zionsville.  

Zionsville Town Council: 

The Town Council appreciates the decision of the Indiana Court of Appeals to uphold the Trial Court’s ruling. The Indiana Court of Appeals has reaffirmed the Town’s Reorganization and specifically that the Mayor may not discharge a department chair without the Town Council’s approval. We hope this decision ends any disagreement on the delineation of responsibilities between the Mayor and the town council. We implore the Mayor to accept this decision and move forward with us, so that we can focus our time and tax dollars on improving our community.
