Councilman Bobby Middlebrooks has lived in Bonifay all his life. But he recently moved to Dogwood, which is outside city limits.
At last night's city council meeting the mayor stressed the importance of all council members living within city limits and the urgency of removing Middlebrooks from his seat.
But other members disagreed, voting to let Middlebrooks finish out his term, which wraps up in the spring.
He says will not run for reelection.
