Goodhue County Administrator Scott Arneson, Human Resources Director Melissa Cushing and Veterans Service Officer Robbie Robinson are named in the complaints, Betcher said, but he would not elaborate on specific details.

County Board met with Betcher in closed session Tuesday for approximately 50 minutes to get “confidential legal advice regarding (a) personnel matter,” according to the board meeting agenda.

Betcher said the issue is being handled by an independent investigator who will be filing a report with the county soon.
