Hearing Set over Yankton Animal Control Officer’s Firing
YANKTON, S.D. (AP) — A grievance hearing is set over the Yankton Police Department's firing of its animal control officer in July.
The Yankton Daily Press & Dakotan reports that the hearing before the South Dakota Department of Labor and Regulation is scheduled for Friday.
Tim Hoss, a union representative, tells the newspaper that animal control officer Lisa Brasel filed a grievance under her union contract.
Hoss says Brasel didn't receive a pre-termination hearing and was fired without just cause.
City Manager Amy Nelson declined to comment to the newspaper.
