Lanesboro City Council Report

Tuchek named Police ChiefBy John TorgrimsonMonday, July 9, 2001

After taking some time to pass motions adopting a City of Lanesboro Police Policy Paper, a Job Description for the Chief of Police and Suggested Criteria for Choosing the Police Chief, the Lanesboro City Council took little time in naming John Tuchek as its new Chief of Police at their Monday, July 2 meeting. Tuchek has been filling in as interim Police Chief since John Carlin left the post on May 12 and has been a full-time officer with the city for some time.

The decision to name Tuchek ends several weeks of speculation on how the city would deal with filling the vacancy. The council decided at their June 18 meeting to craft the policy paper, job description and criteria as a means to correct, what some council members were calling, “a flawed process”.

Council member Hal Cropp made the motion to name Tuchek to the post. The motion was seconded by Council member Peggy Hanson, and was carried with unanimous vote. There was no debate on the relative merits of the two candidates, although several council members spoke up about the positive comments they had received from the public on both applicants. Part-time Officer Mike Churney was the other finalist for the position.

Tuchek gave the police report for the month of June. He commented on the increase in burglaries in the area recently, and in particular break-ins at the Texaco and Peterson Motors. Tuchek said that they believe they know which people have been involved in these cases and are waiting on fingerprint analysis.

The new chief also reported on some traffic signage problems and suggested some recommendations to the council regarding the stop sign at the Golf Course; yield signs at Kirkwood and Ridgeview; stop signs at Beacon and Kenilworth; and the need for lane stripes on Church Hill.

In a related matter, noting the loss of parking spaces on Coffee Street with the construction going on, the council set limited parking to two hours from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., seven days a week.

Art Commission

Hal Cropp updated the council on the work of the Art Commission. Cropp said that the commission is presently getting appraisals completed on the four properties involved in the proposed site: St. Mane Theater, Cheese Factory, White Front Cafe and adjacent vacant lot. The architect is looking at how these existing structures can be re-used and has drawn up a space plan for the si .....
