Marion Mayor Jess Alumbaugh announced Friday he is vetoing three ordinances passed by city council intended to distribute hazard pay to front line workers, claiming council’s attempt to direct how CARES Act money was spent was illegal for several reasons.

At a Friday press conference, Alumbaugh said these are the first vetoes he has issued over his nearly five years as mayor.
