Mount Pleasant trustees Monday will meet in closed session with village attorneys to discuss a possible settlement with former Village Clerk Juliet Edmonds.

Edmonds filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission because she was terminated by the village in 2011. Edmonds had been the elected village clerk, but in 2010 the board voted to make the clerk’s position a regular staff position when the term expired in April 2011.

 

Exactly what Edmonds’ complaint entails is unclear, but sources close to the village have said it may related to age discrimination.

Though Edmonds applied for her job, Debra Salas was chosen instead. She left the job after a year to return to Kenosha where she was appointed city clerk. Veronica Rudychev was hired in 2012 but resigned in 2013, and Stephanie Kohlhagen, the current village clerk, was hired in July 2013.

Other items on the agenda include the discussion and expected approval of a mutual aid agreement between Mount Pleasant police and neighboring departments in Caledonia and Sturtevant; routing for the upcoming Ironman triathlon; and approving the purchase of new plow truck.

The Mount Pleasant Village Board meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. at Village Hall, 8811 Campus Drive. Call (262) 664-7800.
