Charges of sexual harassment and misuse of city property has prompted Idaho Falls Mayor Linda Milam to issue a stern memorandum to employees.
At least one of the complaints reportedly contributed to the firing of an Animal Control Division employee and the demotion of his supervisor.
The city received a tort claim Dec. 1, announcing shelter worker Linda Flud was pursuing a harassment suit. The shelter is run by the police department.
Flud was “continuously subjected to gross and outrageous sexual harassment by her co-employee, Tim Logan, with the knowledge and acquiescence of her supervisor, Donnie Hudson,” the claim says.
