A few days ago I was told by a reliable source that the Woodstock City Council was informed sometime ago in April or May by someone in city government or intimately involved in city government that when Sgt. Steve Gorski was told by his spinal surgeon that he could return to a trial of light administrative duties he chose not to return to duties. This is an absolute lie.
Sgt. Gorski telephoned Deputy Chief Neuzil and informed him of the release by his surgeon and was told over the telephone not to even bother to come in because there was nothing like that available for him even though in the past other officers were accommodated in similar fashion.
As you may recall Sgt. Gorski was vindicated of charges filed against him by Chief Lowen by a 3 to 0 decision of the Board of Fire and Police Commissioners in February. He still has not been offered a light duty posting and has not been paid in over a year in spite of being found that the evidence did not prove the Chief's complaint. I can only wonder if someone or someones are telling the City Council their allegedly altered side of the story to allegedly cover their hind sides and how they may have allegedly abused and continue to allegedly abuse the system and the truth to their advantage. If these allegations turn out to be true I would wonder if there might be some opening positions in city government and departments?
