Lanesboro City Council Report

Over 200 people attend council meeting

By John TorgrimsonBoth Jim Iverson and former council member, John Dollar, questioned why Tuchek was reinstated by the city council following an investigation into harassment about one month ago.
City Attorney Tom Manion responded by admitting that it was a tough decision (3 to 2 to reprimand) and that a couple of council members wanted to dismiss Tuchek. But Manion said that the council chose to practice “progressive discipline.” In Tuchek’s case, this meant setting some conditions he would have to meet which would be measured at both three and six months.

Manion said that the issue was clouded by the fact that the city was not able to corroborate the allegations against Tuchek and that he had recently joined a union.

“In the end, no one on the council had any idea that Tuchek would have a propensity for arson,” Manion said.

John Levell also talked about accountability and challenged the council’s decision making process.

“Hindsight is easier, but not better than foresight,” Levell said. “But this should have been on the radar screen. Tuchek displayed a repetitive pattern of behavior. He had a problem with female relationships.”

Levell said that the town has lost confidence in the community’s leadership.

The last one to speak was Dr. Steve Henke, who talked about the health of the community.

“Everyone is shocked by what happened. No one could have predicted Tuchek’s actions. This is our own 911,” Henke said. “We can’t look back and point fingers. The council acted in good faith.”

With that, Brose gave those who wanted to leave the chance to go. People filed out of the meeting in an orderly fashion. The tension in the room that was palpable at the beginning was long gone.

At the end of a long night, a very relieved Mayor John Brose said that at the beginning of the meeting he was unsure about what would happen. But he admitted that the end result was positive.

“That was a good meeting,” Brose said. “I’m happy with how it ended.”
