Local representative of City County Insurance Services (CCIS) Lisa Jacobson met with Gold Hill Mayor Sherry Young on Monday. Ms Jacobson stated CCIS was very concerned about what was going on in Gold Hill with its city council.
Jacobson went on to elaborate that Hobart “Gus” Wolf, a Gold Hill City Councilor, had sent a copy of a flyer he’d been passing out all over Gold Hill. Hobart “Gus” Wolf demanded CCIS “investigate” Chief Muchow on the statements made in the flyer.
Note: Hobart “Gus” Wolf along with Gold Hill resident Christine Alford sent out similar complaints against Chief Muchow to the Government Standards and Practices Commission, the Jackson County District Attorney and the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (police academy).
CCIS knew better. The flyer made several libelous and untrue statements about Chief Dean Muchow. It is the mission of CCIS to keep the city from being sued.
According to Jacobson, not only did CCIS decline to investigate Chief Muchow regarding the bogus flyer, they’re probably going to increase the insurance rates for the City of Gold Hill.
The increased rates are due to the perception CCIS has about some of Gold Hill’s councilors “running amuck” and failing to act in accordance with the conduct, rules and regulations which most cities follow.
The actions of Councilor Jan Fish were bad enough when she falsely accused a Gold Hill Sgt. of criminal actions to the Oregon State Police and allegedly misappropriated city funds in consulting with the city attorney (she has apologized for her actions and said she’ll pay the attorney bill). Apparently that was not enough of a “wake-up” call for the councilors who want to abolish the Gold Hill City Police Department. Now CCIS is going to make Gold Hill pay higher premiums for its insurance, all due to the wild antics of Jan Fish, Donna Silva and mainly Hobart “Gus” Wolf.
We’re sure the people of Gold Hill will love them for it.
