She has called the mayoral chaos a "very fluid situation." But she was tight-lipped about what the council discussed in its two-hour meeting Friday evening and has declined to say anything about what further steps the council might take. The same night Wallace was sworn in as acting mayor, the council passed a resolution calling upon Thomas to return city property and vacate the mayor's office within 24 hours, by 8 p.m. Thursday. But as of Sunday there had been no effort to enforce that once Thomas didn't comply.
