BURLINGAME—The Burlingame City Council conducted a special
meeting June 22 with two items on the agenda, personnel and the
city swimming pool vacuum cleaner. Burlingame Mayor Ray Hovestadt
and all council members except Carolyn Lee were present.
A motion was made by Burlingame City Council Member Vikki DeMars
for an executive session for discussion of non-elected personnel.
The session was extended one time, after which Burlingame City
Council Member James Nelson introduced a motion to suspend Burlingame
Police Officer Edward Dudley without pay, effective immediately
until the next regular council meeting. The motion was approved
by a 4-0 vote.
The action was the second time in about a month that a Burlingame
officer had been suspended. The council suspended officer Anthony
Richman without pay during a May 20 special meeting. The Osage
County Sheriff’s Office arrested Richman the next day.
