Guild’s Future To Be Discussed At Special Council Meeting Friday

22222_0.jpg

The Rhinelander Common Council will discuss the future of City Administrator Daniel Guild at a special meeting on Friday.

Guild was arrested by the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office on Monday with an anticipated charge of Misconduct in Public Office, a felony.  He was booked into the Oneida County Jail and will make an initial appearance in court Tuesday.  Guild has been under investigation for more than a year.

The Common Council set Friday’s special meeting at a regularly-scheduled meeting Monday night.  The council will likely discuss options like paid administrative leave and possible termination of Guild.

It’s unclear if council members George Kirby and Dawn Rog will be allowed to participate in the meeting.  Kirby and Rog have both been out of the state for months.  In 2019, the council voted to disallow alderpersons from participating by phone.  That rule will be discussed at the beginning of Friday’s 7 p.m. meeting.
