WHITEHOUSE, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas city manager is now under suspension after an unusual city council meeting . At a special meeting Sunday, the Whitehouse City Council voted to suspend longtime city manager Ronny Fite.

Councilmen cited tight budget issues as showing the city's need for a change and new leadership. Fite had requested re-assignment earlier this month.

He now has up to 30 days to make a written response or request a public hearing.
