Resolution to consider a hearing examiner placed on City Council docket

Springfield City Council is considering a resolution to appoint a hearing examiner to further analyze complaints lodged against Councilwoman Jan Fisk by a local citizen. The measure will be included on the Oct. 7 City Council meeting agenda.

The resolution follows a referral of matters by the Missouri Ethics Commission, following a review earlier this year. The City’s legal department recused themselves from the matter and City Council hired outside counsel, St. Louis attorney Kevin O’Keefe, who summarizes his findings in a Sept. 24 memo to City Council titled “Referral of Complaints Against Councilmember Fisk.”

Following O’Keefe’s recommendations, a revised request for a referral to a hearing examiner was signed by eight Council members.
