From the Ask Joe file, another question about the big story that has been unfolding at the Washoe County School District.
One of our viewers wants to know whether former School Police Chief Mike Mieras will get a public hearing, especially after he spoke at the board meeting this week, and mentioned that he knew about possible illegal activity at the school district.
Our viewer said he would think the board would want to know more about this.
School Police Chief Mike Mieras was fired in June, as part of what was described as a restructuring of the department.
Will he get any kind of public hearing? The school district's legal office said Mieras' comments about possible illegal activity taking place are without merit. The school district said they checked into it, and they never received any reports or complaints of illegal activity until this week at the board meeting.
The district said no decision has been made on whether to grant Mieras a public hearing. But if it were to happen, the school district said it would need to know the specific nature of the accusations made by Mieras, so that it would be able to respond accordingly.
Mieras served as Police Chief for 12 years. He told News 4 that he is still considering whether to take legal action against the school district over his firing.
