Huber Heights Councilman Ed Lyons said he’s concerned public records may be “stolen” from the city archives and intends to address the issue at Monday’s city council meeting.

Lyons said the Clerk of Council informed him Tuesday that a one-page original document is missing from the city council archives.

When the issue wasn’t addressed during that evening’s work session, Lyons said he emailed his fellow council members to inform them of his intention.

“In a conversation with (Clerk of Council) Tony Rodgers yesterday, he told me a city record was missing from one of the binders at city hall,” he wrote in the email obtained by this newspaper.

“I brought up this topic and told both (City Manager Rob Schommer and Law Director Alan Schaeffer) that I would be bringing this up on Monday at our city council meeting because I do not want to be involved in any allegations of a cover up,” Lyons wrote Wednesday afternoon.

A receptionist at Huber Heights City Hall said Schommer and other members of city administration were unavailable Friday morning. Schaeffer, an attorney, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
