What's Up at Woodstock PD?

Watch for news soon about what’s happening at the Woodstock Police Department.

An amended agenda for the November 20, 2007, Woodstock City Council meeting included an Executive Session. After conducting the City’s business, the council chambers were cleared of all but Council members, Police Chief Bob Lowen and other official participants.

On the Agenda the purpose of the Executive Session was shown as “Personnel 5ILCS 120/2(c)(1) The appointment, employment, compensation, discipline, performance or dismissal of specific employees of the public body, including hearing testimony on a complaint lodged against an employee to determine its validity.”

That this item was added after the Agenda was prepared may provide an indication of some urgency or last-minute action. One would think that “…appointment, employment, compensation…” would be planned and addressed as a routine matter, even if in Executive Session; i.e., not added at the last minute.

More news to follow.
