Statement on City Manager

Mill Creek City Council Statement on Recent Mill Creek Beacon Article regarding Rebecca Polizzotto
Posted on 06/08/2018
The Mill Creek City Council called a special council meeting on June 8 to draft a formal statement regarding the recent Mill Creek Beacon article titled “Mill Creek City Hall quiet as staff struggles to deal with rudderless ship” by Dan Aznoff released on June 6. The formal statement from the council is the following:

The Mill Creek City Council understands there is interest in the current situation in light of the article posted online yesterday by the Mill Creek Beacon. The City Manager, Rebecca Polizzotto, has been out on medical leave. As you can appreciate, federal law prevents the Council or anyone at the City from commenting on her leave and we trust that her privacy will be respected.

There were inaccuracies and misquotes in the Beacon article. We understand the State Auditor’s Office has stated that the article was incorrect. We do appreciate the Beacon clarifying that fact online. There has been no investigation by the Auditor’s Office of any fraud allegation, and the Council has not reprimanded Ms. Polizzotto as the Beacon reported.

The Council looks forward to Ms. Polizzotto being able to return to work soon. In the meantime, we will have no further comment and not provide any interviews until further notice.

A recording of the meeting will be posted to www.cityofmillcreek.com for reference.
