Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve is calling for a special meeting  of the City Council amid a sexual harassment investigation of City Manager Andrew Clinger.

In a statement emailed on Saturday, Schieve says she takes the allegations against Clinger “seriously” and wants them investigated thoroughly and promptly. She’s calling for an independent counsel to investigate the claims.

Three female employees have accused Clinger of sexual harassment, according to a complaint filed with the Nevada Attorney General over the handling of the case.

1. Why was the Mayor not present at the meeting on 7/20 when the allegations against Andrew Clinger were discussed? She was present on 7/20 (that same day) for the City Council Meeting. I can understand why the City Manager was not present; buy why was the Mayor not present when all of the council members were at this meeting?
2. How much are these investigations costing us tax-payers? Does there have to be a public meeting to approve funds for this expense? Certainly there would not be enough money in “petty cash” to cover these expenses.

I sent your questions to the city, and here’s what City Attorney Karl Hall wrote back:

“Mayor Schieve did attend the attorney/client meeting on July 20th.

“I have not yet received a bill from the investigator but will forward that information upon receipt of a bill.”
