Council may not approve investigator expense


Several City Council members have questioned a recent $8,000 expenditure by the city to hire a private investigator.

The expense is expected to be included in the claims run of tonight’s council meeting, and comments from some council members suggest that claim may not be approved.

“The council wants to know what we’re paying for with this invoice to International Investigators,” said council President Eric Seidensticker, adding that the council may not approve the claim until it is satisfied with the city’s answers about the expense.

Councilman Rick Sharp said it is “likely” that the council will set aside this claim for further review. The council is scheduled to meet at 6 p.m. this evening in City Hall.
