Lanesboro City Council Report

Lanesboro reprimands Police Chief over allegations of harassmentBy John TorgrimsonThe Lanesboro City Council held a special meeting on Tuesday, March 12 regarding its investigation into allegations that have been made against Police Chief John Tuchek. The city hired outside investigators to look into the matter.

Tuesday’s meeting was divided into two parts. The first part of the meeting, which was closed to the public, was to give preliminary consideration to the allegations against the Police Chief.

The council met with Chief Tuchek and union representative Dean Tharp from the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, in closed session from 5:30 p.m. until 7:15 p.m.

The second part of the meeting, which was open to the public, was to consider if any disciplinary measures were necessary, and if so, what those measures should be.

Mayor John Brose opened the second session by asking the council members what they would like to do. Council member Hal Cropp made a motion to reprimand Tuchek, which was seconded by Council member Peggy Hanson.

Cropp’s motion read: “I move that, due to a rupture in the trust between the citizens of Lanesboro and its Police Department, arising from issues of judgements made by the Chief, that the Chief be issued a written reprimand and ordered to take classes in community awareness and community relations especially in the areas of power, age and gender. It is intended that this will help rebuild the trust between the city, its citizens, and the city council.”

Cropp’s motion also asked that the Chief’s progress be evaluated in three months and again at six months.

When Mayor Brose asked if there was any discussion, Council member Kevin Drake commented, “I hope this never happens again.” No other comments were made prior to the vote.

On a roll call vote, the council voted three to two to approve Cropp’s motion, with Mayor Brose, Cropp and Hanson voting in favor of the motion. Council members Jerome Halverson and Drake voted against. Neither Halverson nor Drake explained why they opposed the motion. Judging by Drake’s earlier comments, one might conclude that he wished the council were taking tougher action.

One can concur from the fact that the council took disciplinary action against Tuchek that the city felt that the allegations against the Police Chief were substantiated to some degree.
