MELVERN—The Melvern City Council’s decision to suspend Melvern’s lone police officer at the February council meeting, and reinstate him at a special meeting Feb. 26, led to a full chamber for the March 3 meeting.
The council conducted two executive sessions before addressing the crowd. Council member Brenden Ryan called for the first, a 10-minute session for attorney-client privilege; and council member Brian Yockey asked for the second, a 15-minute session to discuss non-elected personnel. Both ended prematurely.
Between sessions, Yockey read a personal statement.
