Executive Session Tapes Reveal City's Characterization of Witness


Audio recordings of two Springfield city council executive session meetings are raising questions about how the city handled a complaint against City Water Light and Power employees.

 

In the first recording, from October of last year, city corporation counsel Mark Cullen tells aldermen that the complaining witness, Eric Reiss (reese), was uncooperative.

 

But a week later, aldermen confront Cullen with evidence to the contrary.

 

Cullen told aldermen behind closed doors that he relied on another CWLP employee for his conclusion that Reiss would not assist the investigation.

 

Reiss had complained that the workers were doing private tree removal on city time.

 

One worker was fired, but was reinstated after Reiss did not show up for a hearing. Reiss says he was not notified of the hearing until it was too late.
