You do not have to travel to be a council man.

Do employers have to provide personal attendant care for work-related travel? 

According to informal guidance from the EEOC, the ADA does not require employers to provide personal attendant care on the job because reasonable accommodation does not require employers to provide personal need items or services. However, when an employee travels for work and incurs personal attendant care expenses beyond his/her usual expenses when not traveling for work, there is a good argument that the employer must pay the added costs.

Robert Schafer commented that he is concerned about the City’s TAG Program and the offering of $250.00 to under age kids to turn other kids in.  He feels that juveniles will be very motivated to turn other kids in when there is money involved and he is concerned that this violation will be a part of their record.

Mike Woodard commented that he is upset at the phrase used by some Council referring to the vocal minority who express their concerns as “CAVE People.  He asked Council why they think it is wrong that some residents ask questions of Council.

Bob Vukanovich asked Council what format he should use to ask Council questions other than coming to a Council meeting?   He felt that some questions asked at the meeting could be answered by e-mail, or phone.  Go to.
