Wykoff city attorney sits in on council meeting


Fri, Aug 15th, 2014
Posted in Wykoff Government

The Wykoff City Council meeting was called to order at 7 p.m. on Monday, August 11. All previous minutes were approved, including minutes from a special meeting held on August 6 pertaining to employee PTO.

Fire Chief Wade Baker brought the attention of the council to the matter of fire extinguishers located at the Community Center. While the extinguishers are fully charged, they are tagged mostly from 1992 and 1993. Baker suggested he check with Fire Safety USA, out of Rochester, to inquire about servicing the extinguishers. He explained the company has a remote truck to service equipment in surrounding communities. The council granted Baker permission to proceed with collecting information.

Councilwoman Larson-Lund posed a question to her constituents concerning one of her roles in Community Education. Larson-Lund asked for duty clarification and cited she had read through council minutes all the way back into the 1970’s and had found nothing on community education. Councilman Grabau offered suggestions such as National Night Out.

Resident Brody Mensink was the first visitor on the docket. Mensink mentioned he had attended the last council meeting and Councilwoman Larson-Lund had stated she had copies of the minutes he had asked for, he again asked her if she had found them. Larson-Lund told Mensink she was making copies and would make sure he received them.

Mensink also stated he had received a letter a few days after the previous council meeting with the names of the job applicants [for the city’s maintenance position] he had requested. He explained he had asked why these were denied prior and read the response, “Per our city attorney….request for information must be submitted in writing.” Mensink asked if that went for everyone and for everything, including ordinances, minutes, etc. Attorney Manion explained to Mensink this was advised to allow a paper trail. If someone requested information, did not receive it and contacted the state, the state would ask for proof of the request. He also explained that not all information is public information so this also protects the city so they may know specifically what is being requested. Manion suggested the city have a policy to request information. Mensink asked if applicants for city jobs were public information, Manion told him it would depend on what it is and where they are at in the process. He explained there were data privacy limitati .....
