Warning to Superintendent Fails to Pass After Closed Session

COLUMBUS – Platte County Supervisors went into a closed session Tuesday morning to discuss a personnel issue, but a motion to make an employee take anger management failed to pass.

Supervisors called for a closed session at the beginning of Tuesday’s Platte County Board meeting to discuss a personnel issue. After re-opening the meeting to the public, a motion was made that would issue a warning to Highway Superintendent Terry Wicht, and in addition, Wicht would have to take an anger management class.

The motion failed to pass after the vote came out 3-3. Supervisor Bob Lloyd was absent during the vote, and Supervisors Tom Martens, Gerald Micek, and Jerry Engdahl voted against the  motion.  Supervisors James Scow, Holly Olk, and Ronald Pfiefer voted in favor.

Board Chairman Jerry Engdahl says no further action will be taken.

Supervisors did not discuss any details regarding the incident, that caused them to consider issuing a warning.
