Consider hiring process for Chief of Police. Dinwiddie says he will speak with Sheriff Buck Jones about working something out with the Sheriff’s Office. It is proposed that the City pay the Sheriff’s Office a certain amount (to be determined) and our present police officers will take care of the day to day business. This way, City ordinances will be enforced. Brisby says we need to look at everything. Roberts says the local police can keep a problem small. Jason Dinwiddie says presently, a deputy can do everything but bookingThe Mayor, Holland and deputies will speak with Jones. Brisby asked how the officers are currently paid; are they paid for on call? While home? On the job? She says they should be paid only if called. Dinwiddie says they are being paid for on call.

Employee Comments. Cirinna, Junkins and Hoenig had no comments. Dale Sanders says he has called Don Smith at Huffman’s about rust on the sign, but has not heard back from him. Dinwiddie says he will contact Smith. Holland wants to know where Kent Brisby stands at being on duty. Can he be a backup? Jason Dinwiddie says it doesn’t hurt to have someone to help out. Holland says we don’t want to have burn out, such as when Jason was working alone while Rubey and Smith were out sick. Mayor Dinwiddie says Brisby has an application in for Reserve. Brisby says he has to certify with a gun at the Sheriff’s Office. Dinwiddie says he has to be rehired. Holland says Council would have to go through other applications. He wants the matter on the February 2, 2005 Agenda. Holland also wanted to know if the Police Dept. had bought Stop Sticks yet. Dinwiddie says no; they will use the money received from the Lee County Narcotics Task Force for this purchase. Holland and Judy Brisby say Kent Rubey needs to be at the Council meetings. He needs to come to the budget workshop if the Police Dept. needs something budgeted. Roberts says she asked the State if they would please approve the signage coming into Montrose so drivers can better see it and was told they have their own standards and the signs won’t be changed.

According to my Dr. I am a pioneer in the physical effects toxic chemicals have in direct contact with skin according to my hero at University hospital in Ia City. I believe if it were not for this Dr. at the University of Iowa Hospitals and clinics the ongoing exposure to the chemicals unlawfully applied to my property would have taken my life. I was suffering to such a severe degree that I did not want to suffer another day. I consider it worse than cancer. I was completely unable to function. It was unbearable to wear clothes. With cancer the patient generally is given a timeline to expect to live. In this unprecedented case, no local Dr. had a clue as to how to treat my condition. There is no other case I can find in which a neighbor was allowed by local law enforcement to continue applying chemicals to the property owned by a neighbor at all. Moral law would keep a reasonable individual from doing anything to property that did not belong to them. In this case this neighbor was allowed and assisted by local law enforcement to trespass on my property. This is a violation of Federal trespassing law. Significant because my city police chief advised me that he did not want to make the trespasser mad and the county attorney advised me that he would decide who gets prosecuted in his county. Of course since trespassing is a criminal offense I could not file a complaint as a civil issue. This is the way local government officials violated my State and Federal rights for the following five years. When it was obvious that no law enforcement was going to make this neighbor comply with any law regarding his new illegal property redevelopment. When his illegal redevelopment was rejected from being recorded on the County plat map, he with full support of the local government officials determined the remedy to his situation was to acquire my property which would then give him enough property to support the oversized non compliant structures he had built with fraudulent building permits issued by the city building administrator. The damages I have suffered are tremendous. I continue to have skin eruption due to the extended exposure of chemicals unlawfully applied to my property. A civil court order citing my right to use my property as I wished was never a factor to detour this neighbors goal. He was determined to acquire my property no matter the cost. He offered me two out of court settlement that were ridiculous, this in itself is an admission of his guilt. I had never needed an attorney prior to this. I had a huge reality check, I beleive the evidence supports the attorney who represented me took this case on behalf of this neighbor. There is no attorney that could be this incompetent and pass the bar exam. I do not care who you are, nobody has the right to do anything to the property of another person. There is not statute of limitation, the law says "never" to be taken without just compensation. These are serious criminal offenses that fall within the guidelines of a Federal prosecutor to bring charges for public corruption.
