The city manager is expected to put out a statement Wednesday that will detail more information about the probe.

WECT obtained a copy of an email sent to commissioners April 29. The author said he was reaching out to them after appealing to City Manager Jeff Repp without success. Repp declined to comment about the situation to us, saying it was a personnel matter.

The department member’s primary complaint is about “Chief (Greg) Jordan and his sexual degrading remarks towards the females employed by the department.”

The email goes on to describe two specific incidents. To read about those incidents, click here.
