The suspended police chief met with the mayor and investigators from both sides at a second hearing at city hall this morning that lasted about 30 minutes.
Attorneys for Schleuter asked for an extension during the first pre-determination hearing mid-June.
The attorney for the city, Steve Oxenhandler, says there’s been no final decision or disciplinary action against Schleuter.
The hearing at city hall was Schleuter’s last chance to speak his voice in front of the attorneys and the mayor.
NBC 10 confirmed with city officials that Oxenhandler has billed the city $60,890.43 for the investigation into Schleuter.
Officials say Schleuter tried to subpoena Mayor Jamie Mayo and two other investigators in the case, but it failed.
Oxenhandler says Schleuter does not have the authority to issue subpoenas.
“Problem is the subpoenas were not valid. They were issued by a private person (Schleuter). I don’t have the authority to mandate that somebody be here,” he said.
When asked why the meeting ended so quickly, Oxenhandler said, “Chief Schleuter declined to continue. The hearing is over.”
Schleuter is under investigation for recording Mayor Jamie Mayo and other city officials on tape without their knowledge. He’s been under suspension since February 16.
Oxenhandler says that if Schleuter doesn’t agree with the mayor’s decision next Friday, he can appeal that decision before that civil service board.
