HUTCHINSON, Kan. — Richard Greever, who represents local landlords, sparked controversy at the latest Hutchinson City Council meeting when he accused city staff of peeking in windows:
It didn’t stop there. He warned the council that convicted murderer Dennis Rader also worked for a government organization. That brought a sharp response from councilwoman Jade Piros de Carvalho:
Piros de Carvalho said it was sickening for Greever to imply that city workers in Hutchinson were rapists or murderers. Her interjection brought an end to Greever’s accusations. However, he did ask the council to limit city officials from entering private property unless they have a warrant or a complaint from the resident of that property. This all has to do with the rental inspection program which is set to sunset at the end of the year, so the council will look at it again in the fall on whether they want to continue it.
