Attorney cautions council members against ‘unwelcome conduct’

By Cindy Barks | The Daily Courier

With new sexual harassment claims coming to light nationally on a sometimes-daily basis, the City of Prescott has taken note.

During the orientation of newly seated City Council members on Tuesday, Dec. 12, City Attorney Jon Paladini conducted a tutorial on how to prevent harassment from taking place.

“It is particularly important to talk about this in the environment we’re in today,” Paladini told the council, referring to high-profile allegations that have led to the recent resignations/firings of, among others, a U.S. Senator and Representative, a Hollywood mogul, and a number of TV and movie stars.

The council orientation comes after an extensive program for employees this past fall, during which every city worker was required to participate in training on how to prevent harassment.
