SANFORD, Fla. – Sanford City Commissioners passed a “no confidence motion” in the Sanford police chief at a meeting on Wednesday after the investigation into the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Commissioners voted 3-2 in a no confidence in the police chief. The three that voted they had no confidence in Police Chief Bill Lee were Mayor Jeff Triplett and Commissioners Velma Williams and Mark McCarty. It’s not clear what this motion means for the police chief.

McCarty said at the meeting that Police Chief Bill Lee should step down. Commissioner Patty Mahany disagreed with McCarty. They said they wanted wait for all the facts to come in to decide on firing or requiring resignation.

But Williams said she requested Lee to be “removed from situation” for time being to “slow the train down some.”
