On Wednesday, April 1 the West Linn City Council voted 5-0 to conduct an independent investigation into the City’s handling of Michael Fesser’s tort claim against the City from the date it was received through the date a settlement was reached with the City’s insurance carrier. This work will be performed by an outside investigator with no connection to the City of West Linn or its staff. The scope will include how the City Council, City Manager, City Attorney, and other staff received information on this matter, as well as how the Police Department responded to the claim. The scope is not intended to overlap with investigations currently underway by the Department of Justice and local District Attorneys into potential criminal or civil rights charges in the Fesser case.

When they meet in coming days to address the escalating coronavirus pandemic, Oregon lawmakers are likely to temporarily halt evictions and foreclosures, ratchet up financial assistance to struggling businesses and residents, and resurrect a bill that makes it easier to site homeless shelters. Those are among 15 proposals recommended by a special joint committee on handling the disease COVID-19. They were sent along to House Speaker Tina Kotek and Senate President Peter Courtney last week. “The novel coronavirus pandemic is unlike any challenge we have ever faced as legislators and unlike anything we have experienced in our lifetimes,” the chairs of the coronavirus committee, Sen. Arnie Roblan and Rep.
