(Neb.)-Former Gering City Council Member Reprimanded

By: Kevin Larsen Posted at: 08/12/2014 10:02 AM
(GERING)-(AP) - The Gering City Council has reprimanded a former member, citing her emails to other council members and derogatory comments she's made.
The council voted 6-1 on Monday to sanction Jill McFarland, who resigned from her council seat last month. McFarland was accused of violating the council's code of conduct by sending mass emails to other council members, in violation of the state's Open Meetings Act. She also was accused of being publicly disrespectful of city staff and council members and posting online derogatory comments about them.
Mayor Ed Mayo says McFarland was invited to Monday's meeting but didn't attend. McFarland has said she's not the only council member to have violated the policy on emails. She didn't immediately return a call Tuesday from The Associated Press.
