Johnson said the grand jury cause we hold a position ofican institute perjury charges if public the letter said, inlit feels a witness lied, and part. "It would seem that .such an ordinance could have some far reaching effects that would be a giant step toward trying to elim-j inate our constitutional rights merely because we have chosen to serve the public." City Attorney Dave McGuire said the concept of the ordi- nance has .been upheld by the. U.S. supreme court, and that it did not take away any constitu- ;onal rights. In two separate cases, the ourt ruled it is constitutional to ischarge a police officer under uch an ordinance, but informa- ion obtained under the circum- tarices outlined in the ordi- lance cannot be used in crimi- al proceedings against the of- cer. Can't Be Fired An officer cannot be fired lowever, for refusing to sign E waiver of immunity from prose cution. Mayor Don Canney said he fa vored.the ordinance because was requested by the highes law enforcement officer in th state for the purpose of speei ing the investigation: "That cloud has hung over tl police department too tl mayor said.

Steinbeck said he was basing s vote on three matters. One, e said, was the number of tele- lone calls he received on the alter. "When our forefathers enact- d the Constitution of the United ales, I was not aware they scluded police he aid. Second Reason The second reason he; cited- ras a fear of the; ordinance eing the "first step" toward railing constitutional rights. The third reason was lack of ime to study the ordinance. "Isit here in question as to vhether or not I will vote on his ordinance in Stein- >eck said. '_'.'.' Acting Asst. Chief William Byrne said-most officers aren't concerned about the grand jury investigation, but about what will come later. Because, of the wording of the ordinance, he said, officers could be forced to spend most of their time taking polygraph tests in relatively minor cases. Changed Wording McGuJre and the wording of the ordinance was changed to omit a reference (o 'other proceedings" and "court learings." Public Improvements Com- missioner Richard Phillips, re- ponding to Steinbeck's state- ment, said he believes he has to ake all citizens into consider- tion when he votes, not just leen enough time for the associ- tion's lawyer to research the ubject. The ordinance was first pub- is made rn of measure I four automotive engineers, four petroleum company engineers I and an EPA observer. "Not for Mileage" The dynamometer simulates driving conditions, and the EPA has been using it to measure emission standards. The auto makers all argue that it shouldn't be used for mileage measurement. It. was the EPA itself which asked the engineering society city employes and the council were not included in the ordi- nance, and was told it was be- cause the supreme ''court deci- sion referred specifically to po- lice. He then asked the councilmen if they would, as spelled out in the ordinance, take a lie detec- tor test. Would Take Test Canney, Phillips, Finance Commissioner Hal Schaefer and Parks Commissioner Stan Reinis said they would. Steinbeck, who earlier ex- pressed fear the ordinance would become "a political hatchet to weed out said, "If accused, with reason- able grounds, I would be the first to. take a lie detector test if, in fact, it was voluntary. I would be the last if, in fact, I The debate continued for about 90 minutes, with police of- ficers maintaining the ordi- nance was unnecessary and un- help, faced with arguments constitutional, and Canney, omy and are based only on ur-saying the .ordinance is neces- ban-suburban driving. jsary to end the investigation Modifying the various lestingjantl restore public trust in the procedures already used by thelpolice department.
