Gering council member suggests the Attorney General conduct investigation into Gering issues

Posted: Updated:

A Gering council member has suggested the Attorney General's office investigate the discussions of city staff involving a potential meat packing plant.
Citizens of Gering approached council Monday night to ask that council members "discuss and consider" the future employment of Gering City Administrator Lane Danielzuk.

Controversy has erupted in previous weeks about Danielzuk's actions revolving around a potential meat packing plant coming to the city of Gering.

Citizens say Danielzuk's actions cast a bad light on the city, and ask the council consider his future employment for lack of transparency, and failure to act upon his fiduciary responsibilities.

Council members and a number of citizens voiced support for Danielzuk, and said much of the controversy is centered around "hearsay and speculation."
"The only thing I could agree to that I think might sole some of this issue would be to request the Attorney General come in, and do an investigation specifically to the F2E project, anything that transpired, to make sure there was nothing low board or nothing we should be concerned about.," McFarland said.
City Attorney Jim Ellison said a request can be made, but he is not sure if the request is something the Attorney General's office will do.
