Village clerk fired over Ferguson shooting comments

“This was a unanimous decision of the board to terminate John Muhammad as clerk. The reason for the termination is he continued to misrepresent his position as city administrator and manager rather than village clerk” said Magee.
“John Muhammad does not speak for the Village of Uplands Park. We’re glad they caught the person that did this to the officers and wish both a speedy recovery.” Said Spurling.
Muhammad did ask to retrieve his belongings then quickly left the building. Uplands Park has a population of 447 residents. Now the number of village employees has dropped from three to two.
