City Council accepts resignation of Parks, Recreation and Wellness Assistant Director during Monday special session

The Waukon City Council met in special session Monday night, January 11 to accept the resignation of Jeff Snitker, Assistant Director of the Waukon Parks, Recreation and Wellness Department, who was placed on suspension a week earlier after closer observation of his job performance revealed personal use of a City-owned work computer, according to City of Waukon administrative leaders. Snitker, who resigned Friday, January 8, will be paid out his accrued vacation hours, 554.72, at a total of $9,186.16, subject to taxes.
Also on the agenda, the Council heard updates on the recovery of data from a Waukon Police Department computer drive. Waukon City Clerk Allen Lyon noted that Seagate, the manufacturer of the drive, would attempt recovery at an estimated cost of $3,200.
Councilor Dwight Jones stated that a similar event had happened at his employer, and the California-based corporation DriveSavers, Inc. was able to recover every bit of that data within three days. Not an actionable item, the Council made no motions on the subject. However, Lyon, in conjunction with Waukon Police Chief Phil Young, will explore options for recovery and provide the Council with updated information at its next regular meeting.
