No business dealt with by council

By Staff, 11/23/21 10:36 AM

PRESCOTT – Literally no city business was dealt with at the November meeting of the Prescott City County Monday night.

The agenda was basically for reports. Jamie Hillery, executive director of the Prescott-Nevada County Chamber of Commerce, gave her report, reminding the council there have been a couple of ribbon cuttings and community coffees this month. She told the panel the Chamber is working on the Christmas parade and Breakfast with Santa. The parade will be at 6 p.m. on Dec. 9, starting at the city municipal building. Breakfast with Santa is set for Dec. 4 from 9-11 a.m. at the Potlatch Building.

The electric committee was listed on the agenda, but Prescott Mayor Terry Oliver said they aren’t ready to report yet.

At this point, it appeared the meeting would end and be one of the shortest on record. This, though, wasn’t the case. Former police officer Colby Tillman asked to speak. Tillman said he had no malice in his heart and loves the city, telling how he worked hard as a member of the Prescott Police Department and missed time with his family because of his job. He said after making one arrest in particular, things went downhill. He said policies were changed that only affected him as he was the only one who traveled for the PPD, he was cursed at by other officers and he was targeted, with officers driving by his house five or six times a day, was lied to and had rumors spread about him.

Tillman said he wants nothing from the city, but to be left in peace.

Councilman Jerry Hightower asked if Tillman had evidence showing anyone had acted against the law, city policy or city codes. Tillman said he did, with Hightowar saying something was seriously wrong.

Tillman forwarded a video with no sound from his phone to Hightower’s with an executive session called to watch it and discuss the situation. No action was taken.
