City Council members are scheduled Monday night to discuss a proposal that would make the city’s healthy workplace and anti-harassment policies apply to them.

Ald. Peter Braithwaite (2nd) requested the measure.

In a memo to the Rules Committee, Interim City Manager Kelley Gandurski says city employees may be disciplined for violations of the policies through the city manager’s office, but currently there is no mechanism to enforce those policies for elected officials.

If the City Council adopted such amendments to the ethics code, procedures for handling violations, Gandurski says, would be the same as for existing violations of the ethics code.

The discussion follows a report of a heated encounter earlier this year between Gandurski and Ald. Clare Kelly (1st).
