IMPERIAL — Actions taken by the Imperial Police Department were questioned by an Imperial resident at a City Council meeting here Wednesday night.
During the public appearances section of the meeting, Stephen Aguirre appeared before the council and made complaints against the Imperial Police Department, accusing it of harassment and mishandling complaints against officers he made to the department.
Aguirre claimed he was wrongfully arrested for misuse of 911 emergency services.
He later offered to take a lie-detector test to prove to the council his complaints are valid.
The council said it would investigate Aguirre's complaints.
In another matter, in December the council declared the office of treasurer vacant and sought candidates for appointment rather than conducting an election.
Three individuals applied for the position, but former City Councilman Steve Shaner was appointed by unanimous vote as city treasurer Wednesday night.
