This was the third month in a row that Mayor Huber stopped the meeting and stormed out of the building refusing to listen to Lanoux's motions, amended motions, or requests to remove items off the consent agenda for discussion.
Mayor Jeff Huber, Carr and Kaup leave important City of Grant Agenda Items and Grant Residents in Limbo.
Who is Jane Doe?
There were several Grant Residents in attendance at the meeting that were there to seek approval on personal items that will have to wait until the next City Council Meeting on September 4th. Mayor Huber continued to lay sole and personal blame on Council Member Lanoux for all of City of Grant's problems and high legal costs. But one could refer to the August City Council Meeting Agenda, which lists 4 separate items under new business titled "Consideration of "date" Executive Session Meeting Minutes (Lanoux Abstain)". These agenda items pertain to a lawsuit filed by City of Grant Administrator Kim Points, who has been to referred by the City of Grant, as "Jane Doe," instead of using Ms. Points actual name. With direction from Grant Mayor Jeff Huber, Ms. Points had filed a lawsuit against the City of Grant and named Council Member Lanoux as the reason. The City of Grant pushed for a quick monetary settlement and wrote a check to Ms. Points in the amount of $50,000 with no legal discovery or real litigation time. The $50,000 amount was settled and paid right before this Fall Grant City Council Election Season will kick off. There will be no surprise to see Mayor Jeff Huber publishing multiple fliers this election season on behalf of his chosen candidates about how Council Member Lanoux caused the City of Grant high legal expenses.
