WILLMAR -- An attorney has told the Willmar Municipal Utilities Commission that the investigative report of General Manager Bruce Gomm provides sufficient cause for terminating his contract.

The attorney, present on behalf of the League of Minnesota Cities Insurance Trust, went over the report point by point and concluded just minutes ago by presenting four options to the commission: reinstate Gomm with no further action, reinstate with discipline, dismiss with cause, dismiss without cause and pay up to six months of severance.

The commission Dec. 12 placed Gomm on 30-day paid administrative after holding a closed meeting to give preliminary consideration of possible misconduct.

Gomm's leave has been extended twice.

Gomm is now speaking to the commission. He has been given up to 30 minutes to respond to the report.
