The crowd waited Tuesday night to be let into Lakeland City Hall.

The Lakeland City Council stripped Mayor Richard Glasgow of most of his powers Tuesday night, delegating his authority over public works, water services and other city functions to council members.

The public defrocking of Glasgow, who skipped the meeting, was the council's bid to end a longstanding fight for control of the city that's seen shouted accusations, meeting walkouts and locked City Hall doors.
