Reimbursed expenses questioned in Westwood. A former city attorney for Westwood appeared before the council to question the charging of meals and drinks to the city by Mayor John Yé. Jim Orr had been city attorney for a number of years, but resigned before Yé took office in 2008. Orr said no alcohol should be purchased by the city, asked for reimbursement, for the mayor to resign and for a city policy on reimbursed expenses. Yé said he stays within the budget specifically allotted for meals and entertainment and often does not ask for reimbursement. He said he listed on the expenses who was with him, but not the purpose. Staff, business interests and other public officials are usually the attendees. At the October meeting, Orr raised questions about the Woodside bonds and about the master plan process for the city.
