The very good news that the city of Taylors Falls has finally received a strong offer for the empty city lot on mainstreet— was overshadowed by a staff member’s near breakdown in chambers Monday night this week.  City Attorney Patrick Kelly was in the audience for the purpose of facilitating action on the lot purchase agreement, and had to verbally hush the Clerk Treasurer; who rose from her chair to comment on a workplace pay equity complaint and her allegations of discrimination.  Kelly interrupted, and reminded the clerk the state investigation is open and she must not make public statements until there’s a decision.
