Mayor Jamie Irons said proper noticing of the meeting occurred, but the council was not ready to take any action. He did not elaborate on the status of Lueker’s employment.
Last week, the council voted to instruct special counsel Steven Simas to negotiate a termination agreement with Lueker. At the same meeting, the council approved a severance package of $163,235 for Rob Schultz, who left his position as city attorney Friday.
The council majority, led by Irons, had been pushing to fire both Lueker and Schultz since September, but the agreement with Schultz allowed him to resign.
