Mayor places 3 of city’s highest-ranking workers on leave
DENISON, Iowa (AP) — The mayor of a western Iowa city has placed three of the city’s highest-ranking employees on paid administrative leave.
Denison Mayor Jared Beymer and other city officials haven’t explained why the action was taken Tuesday against City Manager Terry Crawford, Fire Chief Cory Snowgren and City Clerk Lisa Koch. Beymer says he can’t comment about the matter because it’s a “personnel investigation.”
Koch said Thursday that she, Snowgren and Crawford were surprised by the mayor’s action and so far haven’t been given reasons for being placed on leave.
