Facebook Effort to Recall Filer Officials

Filer, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV )

An effort in Filer taking place to recall Mayor Rick Dunn and four city council members.

Some residents feel as though proper steps were not taken by the officials following an incident on February 8th, in which a police officer shot and killed a dog running at large.

A Facebook page with over 1,000 likes titled "Recall Filer Mayor Rick Dunn" urges residents to sign a petition on Monday, which marks 90 days into the council members term in office and is the first day a petition can legally be circulated.

We spoke to Mayor Dunn earlier this week and asked him his thoughts on the movement.

Dunn commented, "It's their right. It's part of their democracy so I don't have a thought one way or the other."

According to the Facebook group, a meeting will take place at Highway 30 café tomorrow evening at 7.
