BROKEN BOW— A fourth grievance has been filed against Broken Bow Mayor Jonathon Berghorst by Electrical Superintendent Jeremy Tarr. The new grievance states that Tarr was given a written reprimand by the Mayor on Tuesday, September 3.

Tarr states in the grievance that the nature of the filing is receiving an undeserved written reprimand, Retaliation.

The remedy that is asked for by Tarr is for the retraction of the written reprimand and the ability to perform his responsibilities and job duties without interference or repercussions from the Mayor.

Tarr had also filed a grievance against the Mayor on August 20, where he stated that the grievance was filed due to safety concerns, hostile/bullying working environment, Mayor directing [Tarr] to not perform [his] job responsibilities and requirements according to [Tarr’s] job description, and the Mayor Micromanaging and making decisions that are not the Mayor’s to make.

Mayor Berghorst was not immediately available for comment.
