Nepotism in Akeley
Why would Brian Hitchcock, the mayor of Akeley, employ his wife Sarah (Lacy) Hitchcock as the manager of the local Municipal Liquor Store in Akeley? Isn’t the liquor store the only cash revenue the city has other than the camp ground? Can a mayor employ his wife? Read the state Statutes Section 473.704 Subd. 5. Employees, contractors; no nepotism.
“It may employ such other persons and contract for such other services as may be needed to carry out the control programs in the district, except that no person may be employed by the commission who is related to any commissioner.”
How long will the people in Akeley allow this kind of illegal activity to go on? The city audit records prove something is going on. Wake up, people!
