MEIGS, GA (WALB) -

Most residents in Meigs are happy to know that the recall petition for Mayor Linda Harris is approved.

Meigs residents started a recall petition in hopes to recall Mayor Harris. They needed at least 116 signatures for it to be approved    

A resident who started the petition says the county election superintendent told them they exceeded that amount.

Residents hope this will help the city move forward in the right direction. "Oh I was ecstatic I just think it's the best thing since peanut butter. I think its outstanding. I'm ready to see the city of Meigs to get some leadership that will allow this city to grow and some leadership that will help the people in Meigs," said Rodney Hudson, Meigs Resident.      

The recall election will start in May.
