Council approves policy changes

During its regular meeting on July 9, the Sweet Home City Council approved a personnel policy update addressing harassment.

The city’s insurance provider, CIS, suggested updates to the policy to include an additional reporting process and protection against retaliation for reporting harassment for city employees, said City Manager Ray Towry.

Present and voting to update the policy were councilors Cortney Nash, Susan Coleman, Mayor Greg Mahler, Diane Gerson, James Goble and Dave Trask. Lisa Gourley was absent.
