I am still trying to figure out this mystery. I took another look at the civil service board’s agendas/minutes. I could find NO record of Shawn’s resignation or dismissal. Mind you, there is plenty of executive sessions, but I find it odd his name is not listed anywhere.
If you look at the minutes/agendas for 9/20/2010, 11/3/2010 and 1/5/2011 you can come up with some assumptions.
In the 9/20/2010 minutes/agenda there is no advertising listing for an assistant city attorney, but in the 11/3/2010 minutes/agenda there is.
Then in the 1/5/2011 minutes agenda there is a new hire
That would tell me that Tornow left sometime between 9/20/2010 & 11/3/2010. But there is no record of it.
So the question remains. Has he received his civil service hearing or not? Mr. Bengford replaced SOMEONE? Did he replace Tornow?
