The City Attorney sent three separate requests to Mayor Johnson requesting certain records.None of which Mayor Johnson responded to.
During the April 6th, meeting the Council agreed to a conciliatory tabling of the motion on the floor and that Mayor Johnson would bring the requested documents to a special meeting scheduled for May 11th, for discussions with the City Attorney.
Since the April 6th, Council meeting Mayor Johnson's has made comments that undercut the city's confidence in Mayor Johnson's committment to produce the requested public records. Comments are attached.
