Waterloo Council Silent on Mechanic Hire/Fire
John Oehlerich Still Without Job He Thought He Had
0 0

He left his job of six years because he thought he’d been hired as a City of Waterloo mechanic. In fact, he’d even begun training for the position.

But one week ago John Oehlerich found out that the city council had voted 4 to 3 against his employment, based on budgetary concerns.

For the record, council members Margaret Klein, Chris Shimp, Bruce Jacobs and Steve Schmitt voted to deny the appointment, and declined, by their silence, to reconsider their decision last night.
