The prosecutor's office has made a decision on the case against the City of Winlock. Prosecutor Jonathan Meyer's decision was no illegal activities. The investigator only spoke with one side of the investigation, he did not speak with the individual who filed the complaint.
These claims include staff not following city ordinances, Mayor Bradshaw not following city ordinances, city council not following ordinances, Winlock Police Department violating civil rights of an individual and not following city ordinances. Also included were claims of violations of the Open Public Meeting Act also known as OPMA by Winlock City Council.
According to the information received, the City of Winlock code enforcement officer removed a sign from a citizen's yard without following the city ordinance. The sign was against Mayor Bradshaw and the City Council. The citizen called the non emergency line for Lewis County. Chief Valentine called the citizen, said he would look into it, yet he never got back to the them. There was even a witness to the theft but the witness was not contacted. The citizen went to retrieve their sign and was told "we did you a favor." The city has an ordinance which it did not follow. If the city does not have to follow the law then why do the citizens?
Lewis County Prosecutor Jonathan Meyer found nothing illegal with the code enforcement officer entering private property without authorization. Meyer found nothing illegal with the code enforcement officer taking a sign without proper legal notice. How is this acceptable?
