Appreciation event's bill is not city's responsibility

| February 6, 2024 1:00 AM

Included on the Sandpoint City Council agenda Wednesday, Feb. 7, is an itemized list of bills that the council generally approves without discussion.  

The second item on this list is $810 payable to 113 Main, Councilman Justin Dick's restaurant, for an "appreciation of service" event for Shelby Rognstad, Kate McAlister and Jennifer Stapleton.

In my opinion, this is a breach of ethics. The city should not pay this bill. Those who participated owe the bill. Those elected officials and any city employees who participated owe city residents a public apology for this serious lapse in judgment.
