NC GAZETTE / WBRT RADIO
Wednesday, Jan. 25, 2017, 11 p.m. – The Bardstown City Council voted Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2017, to greatly expand the scope of its investigation that was originally triggered by anonymous packets of public records of two council members that appeared prior to the council’s Nov. 1 working session. Following an hour-long closed meeting — one that excluded Mayor John Royalty, City Clerk Barbie Bryant and Human Resource manager Larry Green — the council voted unanimously to expand the scope of the investigation to include “government matters requiring further investigation by our investigator.” The council also questioned the mayor on budget issues that included overspending on several line items in the budget. The council also gave final approval of the whistleblower ordinance that will protect city employees from retaliation if they report illegal or unethical actions at their workplace. Running time: About 1 hour, 6 minutes.
