The Mitchell Board of Works will meet, privately, next Wednesday, April 28th, at 10am.  At 11am, they will meet publicly to issue their decision on the suspension and possible termination of Officer Steve Blair.

Blair was placed on suspension, without pay, last month by Chief Presnell after Mayor Dan Terrell filed a complaint against Blair, alleging that, while serving as the Chief of Police, he surreptitiously recorded a private conversation between himself and the Mayor.  Blair then allegedly gave the recording to former Officer Randy Phelix, who subsequently brought a lawsuit against the City of Mitchell.

Board of Works members Steve Burton and Mike Eager will be the ones to decide Blair’s fate.  I am planning to attend the hearing and will be posting live updates via the Mitchell News twitter feed.
