Council asks if policies followed in investigation

 

Council discussed personnel policies and procedures at the June 13 city meeting. 
 
According to city manger Raymie Zella, the personnel policies and procedures manual has been updated twice in the last five years.
 
“We want to make sure the city [personnel policies and procedures] reflect recent changes made by the state legislature regarding any particular item,” said mayor Sara Post Meyer. “I think it’s a good thing to review it every couple of years.”
