Insurance talks turn ugly at commission meeting

July 19, 2005

Albany - A perceived threat led to a heated argument during Tuesday's city commission meeting. Assistant City Manager Kevin Hogencamp said that commissioner Tommy Postell told him to place information about the city's insurance on the agenda this week, "Or he'll have hell to pay."

Postell refuted that, saying Hogencamp should always follow the commissioner's requests, and claimed he actually said "Or all hell would break lose."

Either way, some commissioners thought the comment was inappropriate.

"I don't owe anyone an apology, and I'm not apologizing. So you can forget that and move on," said Postell during the meeting.

Postell also got angry that interim city manager Lem Edwards wasn't sitting at the commission table, and instead asked Hogencamp to sit with the commissioners.

Edwards argued that Hogencamp was going to stay on with the city even after he would be replaced by a full-time city manager, so Hogencamp's input at the table was vital.
