Rapid City Council Will Discuss Releasing Clayton Report

A month after the City Council voted to take no action on the written complaints against Alderman Bill Clayton, the report of the investigation may be released.

A month after the City Council voted to take no action on the written complaints against Alderman Bill Clayton, the report of the investigation may be released. In the last week, the source of the second complaint against Clayton went public with the alleged comments he made. The Rapid City Journal reported on what KOTA reporter Taisha Walker told them about Clayton's conduct, as well as reactions of the mayor and city council members. Revelations about what is in the report have changed City Attorney Joel Landeen's stance on releasing the report; as the Journal reports, he had initially opposed releasing the report, or at least wanted names blocked out. Now most of that information has already been made public, so he has dropped his opposition.

The Legal and Finance Committee voted to make the report public, so the issue now goes before the entire City Council in their Tuesday meeting. For more stories related to the city's Code of Conduct, visit the Black Hills Knowledge Network's online news archive.
