Santa Cruz City releases Independent Investigation Report
http://www.cityofsantacruz.com/Home/Components/News/News/8443/36

The report is a part of the investigation that was initiated by the City of Santa Cruz’s Human Resources Department. To ensure transparency and maintain integrity of the process, an independent investigator, attorney Joe Rose of Rose Law, was retained on March 11, 2019.

The Rose Law group, based in Sacramento, specializes in investigations of this type.  The investigator was retained to make an independent determination on the allegations and was provided unrestricted access to information and witnesses.

The scope of the investigation included complaints made by five individuals against Councilmember Drew Glover and Councilmember Chris Krohn alleging violations of the City of Santa Cruz Administrative Procedure Order Section II, #1B Respectful Workplace Conduct; and City Council Policy 25.2, Discrimination, Harassment, Retaliation, and Respectful Workplace Conduct Policy occurring between July 2018 and May 3, 2019.

The independent investigator provided findings and recommendations for moving forward. In his letter, City Manager Martin Bernal stated that he was “Committed to improving communications and relationships amongst Councilmembers and between Councilmembers and staff so that we may work together for the greater good.”  In addition to the recommendations made by the investigator, HR Director Lisa Murphy is recommending that the Council form a subcommittee of two members to develop a code of ethics policy for the members of the City Council.
