Drunken city employee totals city truck, keeps job. (Des Moines Register, 7/6/2015)
Anita Mayor Tim Miller declined to comment and referred calls to Jim Mailander, an attorney for the city. Mailander did not immediately return a call for comment.

City Clerk Lindsay Jahde confirmed the vehicle was owned by the city and that Winther continues to hold the same job he did before the accident. The insurance payment for the damaged vehicle totaled $9,650, she said.

Perhaps Anita should take adopt the guidelines found in State of Iowa's Substance Abuse Guidelines for Supervisors.

The unauthorized use, possession, sale, purchase, manufacture, distribution, or transfer of any drug or alcoholic beverage while engaged in state business or on state property is prohibited.
