Mayor Bill Wells

Former Murray City Clerk Harla McClure will file a lawsuit against the city for wrongful termination. Attorney Thomas Clay says Mayor Bill Wells declined to reinstate McClure as city clerk. Wells fired McClure in early September on allegations of lying about the theft of a $50 city sticker. McClure denies any dishonesty and says it was a misunderstanding.

City documents show that recently fired Murray City Clerk Harla McClure was let go due to a dispute over a city sticker.

Votes for Murray's wet dry election could certified as early as Friday. The city voted to allow package alcohol sales this week, in a local option election.

Rand McNally and USA Today have awarded Murray the title of “Friendliest Small Town in America." The award comes from the organizations' Best of the Road contest. The friendliest town award comes ironically on a divisive day for city residents as they vote on whether or not to allow package alcohol sales.
