GRANDFALLS - The political turmoil in Grandfalls continues.

The City Council has fired the City Administrator Joe Gilbert.

Gilbert is currently defending himself against a criminal trespassing charge from earlier this year.

On top of that, City Councilwoman Karen Keith has resigned from the council.

Grandfalls Mayor Jimmy Cockerham told NewsWest 9 that Keith was tired of the in-fighting and turmoil.

Cockerham says he's now focused on trying to make Grandfalls a better place to live.
