Ethics Opinion Still on Hold for Mayor
The city attorney's office tells us that an opinion has yet to come from an outside law firm on mayor Matt Harter's ethics issues. City council member Dick Swantz had requested an opinion from the city's own legal department regarding meetings mayor Matt Harter attended with his father and the county's solid waste director. The city attorney deferred, saying an outside opinion was necessary to remove any bias. That all happened about a month ago. No opinion yet and neither has the city's ethics committee met to weigh in on the mayor's actions.
