In case you missed it, Indian Wells council held a special meeting Thursday to strip Mayor Pro Tem Doug Hanson of his title.
Hanson will continue to serve as a councilman, with Bill Powers being promoted to the council’s second in command.
Adding insult to injury, city officials repeatedly misspelled Hanson’s name as “Hansen” in the news release they sent out to announce the decision.
Two hours later, city officials sent out a follow-up email that blamed “the rush to get this out” for the errors.
Neither city email explained why the transition couldn’t have waited for the council’s next regularly scheduled meeting.
