CORUNNA — Thirty-fifth Circuit Court Judge Matthew Stewart Tuesday dismissed appeals by three county commissioners that sought to invalidate recall petitions launched after commissioners voted to award themselves up to $25,000 in federal COVID relief funds — meaning the recalls are now clear to proceed.

According to an order signed by Stewart and filed in Circuit Court Tuesday afternoon, the appeals by commissioners John Plowman, R-district 7, Cindy Garber, R-District 6, and Jeremy Root, R-District 5, were filled with numerous procedural errors and failed to comply with court rules. A hearing on the appeals had been scheduled for today.
