Or just have existing Maple Street northbound traffic merge into the left lane prior to the entrance ramp, so that both Maple and Riverside have equal access.
The City's Sexual Harassment policy (ADMIN 0620-05-35) says in section 6.1.6.b. that "when supervisors are notified of alleged sexual harassment, they shall immediately: (1) document and report the incident to the department head, (2) investigate the complaint, (3) take appropriate action, (4) forward the results of the investigation to the Human Resources Department, and (5) provide official findings and comments, in writing, within ten (10) working days of the receipt of the complaint.
Section 6.1.3. of the policy says that complaints "may" be submitted in writing or by any means accessible to the complainant. The person "receiving" the complaint must sign or attest in writing and date the complaint. There's nothing in the policy that says the person alleging sexual harassment must file a written complaint. I keep reading that a written complaint was never filed --- but I don't see anything in the policy that a written complaint must be filed.
It sure sounds like City policy was not followed at all --- and that's put the City at great financial risk (as well as potentially placing women employees of the Police Department at risk if the allegations are true.)
I would hope that the investigator reviews the policy and receives testimony under oath about what happened and why City policy was apparently not followed.
Perhaps the Inlander could file a public records request to determine the scope of the judge's engagement and the cost.
Ted, I agree with you and I'm voting NO on County Prop. 1 because we can do better.
There won't be any pressure on the County Commissioners to put a home rule charter on the ballot if the commission is simply increased to five from the current three.
Let's not mix up the issue of combining city and county governmental services (that helped the most recent home rule charter proposal to fail a number of years ago).
But if we're going to incur additional costs from having two more commissioners, let's have election and representation by district (to better protect the rights of minorities and represent the urban portion of the county). A home rule charter proposal can contain that language.
County Prop. 1 doesn't have that language. It simply increases the size of the commission to five.
The status quo is broken at the county level. But County Prop. 1 isn't the way to fix it. Vote NO on County Prop. 1.
For the next article in the series, I think the first name of "Dennis" is actually "John."
And we won't learn anything about candidate #17, George Pataki?
Would have been interesting to hear reports from Green Bluff growers --- strawberries came and went lickity split as did cherries. What's the expectation for the rest of the growing season?
Happiness is pretty good. Please don't eat there as it's easier to get a table right now.
