Former mayor of Heinola municipality Tita Rinnevaara, who was terminated from her post last year, demanded €120,000 as compensation for her dismissal.
The preliminary hearing on the compensation claim was held on Wednesday and it was decided that the main hearing of the dispute would be held at the District Court of Päijät-Häme on February 19.
The claim was raised based on a mayoral agreement, in which the municipality argued that the agreement would not be effective in this regard following the dismissal of the mayor that was preceded by police investigations.
Rinnevaara also appealed at the Kouvola Admisnistrative Court against the decision of dismissal and the court verdict is expected in spring.
The Supreme Administrative Court ruled last spring that Rinnevaara’s appointment as the mayor of Heinola was illegal because of a procedural error by the Council.
Earlier in 2013, Tita Rinnevaara was removed following her defeat in a no-confidence vote.
The city council brought the no-confidence motion against the mayor for her failure in controlling the city administration and inability in making decisions.
Rinnevaara was defeated by 33 votes to 10 in the no-confidence motion.
The mayor was sacked just after two weeks of assuming the office.
