Spring Valley Trustee Fonvil Reinstated to Positions

A state Supreme Court Judge ruled on Monday that Spring Valley Mayor Demeza Delhomme did not have legal ground to remove Vilair Fonvil from his position as Trustee and Deputy Mayor. Justice Margaret Garvey issued a restraining order reinstating Fonvil and preventing Delhomme from removing him for the time being. The order also states that Miguelino Joseph, who Delhomme appointed to the Trustee position on Friday, has no right to make actions as a Trustee until the court makes an ultimate decision. Two weeks ago Fonvil, as well as Trustees Emilia White and Asher Grossman hired Dennis Lynch to represent them and their decision on the board in court if necessary. Lynch stated that Garvey’s decision was unusual, but if Fonvil was removed Delhomme would instantly gain majority control of the board. Lynch’s firm is currently investigating the Mayor’s purchase of a 2014 Ford expedition at the village’s expense, which he uses as his official vehicle. The board will be meeting tonight at 8:00 PM and the case will be heard in court by Justice Gerald Loehr on March 6 at 10:00 AM.
