During a special called council meeting on Nov. 21, Saint Jo alderpersons denied a request from police officer Lindsey Montgomery asking for light duty during her pregnancy.
Montgomery had filed a grievance with the City of Saint Jo over the matter, and there’s still the possibility of legal action.
Officer Michael Montgomery, Lindsey’s husband, has been placed on the agenda to accept his letter of resignation.
An executive session is scheduled concerning Lindsey Montgomery, with possible action by the council.
