There is a lot of he said/she said about who ordered everyone including the media removed from Carnegie Town Hall and when. In one instance, the police person said the mayor ordered it. The mayor said the council ordered it. Another councilor said it was never discussed in executive session. There is a lot of back tracking going on which is just adding to the controversy over the action to fire Debra Owen.
Who is responsible to shut the building down? Councilor Erpenbach said they were just following standard procedure. Owen would have been the one to lock down the building after normal business hours or an evening council meeting, she said. Well, not really. Standard procedures is for Facilities Management to have a building maintenance worker at Carnegie Town Hall who is responsible for shutting down the building after meetings. Do you really believe it is the City Clerk, the chief executive appointive officer to the City Council, who checks for people in the building and locks it down at night? Ridiculous.
It seems the elected officials can't even tap down who shuts the building down at night. My confidence level with city government is at an all time high. How about yours?
Sounds kind of like Curly, Moe and Larry down at City Hall and Carnegie Town Hall.
