Council to discuss recall petitions
During the Red Wing City Council meeting the council will be presented with recall petitions for members Andy Klitzke, Laurel Stinson and Council President Becky Norton. The council can either pass a motion to decline calling a special recall election for Klitzke, Norton and Stinson on the basis that the grounds for recall in the petition are insufficient to constitute malfeasance or nonfeasance on the part of the members or adopt the resolution calling for a special recall election.
The City Council will meet virtual at 6 p.m. on Monday, May 24. The meeting can be watched live on Channel 6, accessed by phone at 415-655-0001 (when prompted enter code 182 118 7232 and password 2021) or joined via the city’s Webex link.
