Letter guides city staff on meetings with Alderman Zima
Green Bay city staff has been advised on how to handle meetings with Alderman Guy Zima after various incidents and complaints in regards to his conduct with staff members.
Through an open records request, Action 2 News obtained a letter sent to city staff on October 11 from a city attorney that outlines the procedures for meeting with Zima.
The letter says, a meeting with Alderman Zima and staff will be in an office and not in a public space. If he refuses to meet in an office or somewhere other than a public space, the employee can refuse to meet with him.
Two employees need to be present in his meetings with city staff.
Employees can end the meeting if they feel harassed, threatened, or if he is being disrespectful.
If Zima does not comply with these procedures, he will not be able to meet with employees, but will have to schedule an appointment for a time when the department head can be present.
When asked about the email, Zima said he won't allow the rules to affect his efforts to help his constituents.
