Lanesboro City Council Report

Council postpones decision on police chiefBy John TorgrimsonMonday, June 25, 2001

It shouldnt take eight weeks, interim Police Chief John Tuchek told the Lanesboro City Council at Monday nights meeting. Tuchek was reacting to the council wanting to postpone a decision on hiring a new police chief.

Touchek and Mike Churney, who works as a part-time police officer in Lanesboro, are the two applicants for the post which was created with the resignation of John Carlin in May. Tuchek has been acting chief since Carlin left on May 12.

Both Mike Churney and I are upset that this is being delayed further, Tuchek said.

Council member Hal Cropp explained the need for the council to delay the hiring in order to develop a job description and establish the criteria that will be used in making a decision by the council. Cropp thought it would also be useful to have a position paper on what are the needs of the city relative to law enforcement.

We need to make sure there is a job description and concrete information in front of us, Cropp said. And we need to talk through some policy issues.

Council member Peggy Hanson agreed.

Ive been thinking along the same lines, Hanson said. I think we should put together a small committee to look at criteria.

I think that this process has gotten out of hand, Tuchek interjected into the discussion. I am not happy with how this is being handled.

Tuchek went on to say that the League of Minnesota Cities and the Minnesota Police Officers Association have been contacted.

They say that you cant go ahead and make up the criteria after the fact, Tuchek said. For example, you could all of a sudden make a criteria that you had to have a four year degree versus overall experience.

Well, is it fair to hire you and change your job description later, Cropp responded, saying that the council is trying to fix a flawed process.

The council vowed that the job description and criteria would not be specific to either candidate and focused solely on the skills needed to be chief of police.

Cropp, Hanson and City Administrator, Barb Hoyhtya will work on bringing these items to the next city council meeting. The council will then decide how it wishes to proceed.
