Greazzo, Levasseur in heated exchange over solicitor's report
But Mayor Ted Gatsas called on him to wait his turn to speak.
When his turn came, Levasseur said, "What in the world do you think my motivation would be to come before this board to say there was a lapse (in insurance)? I believed it was my duty," he said. "What you just said publicly, as a member of the bar association and an attorney, calling someone a liar in public is not only a disgrace, but the lowest level of engagement I've ever seen on this board."
He insisted that the MDPA itself had impeded his office's ability to determine whether Levasseur lied and divulged confidential information when he said at a previous aldermen's meeting that the MDPA's insurance had lapsed. The insurance is a key component of the agreement under which the MPDA is allowed to use city land for the dog park.
Gatsas gavelled the meeting into recess.
When the aldermen reconvened, Alderman-At-Large Dan O'Neil said he felt there was a need for "closure" on the matter.
Levasseur said, "This has turned into a circus."
O'Neil then interjected to make a motion that the solicitor's report be received and filed.
