In the continuing discussion about what activities city of Scandia employees can and cannot do, the next step is up to Mike McCain, lead employment attorney at Eckberg Lammers. McCain attended the June 4 council meeting after a new policy proposal discussed in April and May met with resistance.
Individuals can install solar panels on their roofs, gain a tax advantage and reduce their electric bills for years. If they generate enough electricity, they can sell the excess to the power company. At its June 4 workshop, the Scandia Council heard an alternative.
Benefits beyond pay and pension for city workers were on the agenda at April and May Scandia City Council work sessions. On June 4, the council is expected to act on a policy defining and limiting use of city facilities and equipment by city employees.
