Former Landfill Director Accused of Misconduct Files Lawsuit
A former Fort Dodge solid waste agency worker accused of misconduct has filed a lawsuit against the agency and its current interim director. The Fort Dodge Messenger reports that Deb Watson Lentsch is seeking to get her job back with the North Central Iowa Regional Solid Waste Agency. Watson Lentsch claims she was fired for reporting misconduct by current interim director Cindy Turkle, and in addition to her job, is seeking monetary damages as well. Watson Lentsch was fired as co-director of the agency in September, and an unemployment appeal denied her benefits because of alleged misconduct.
