LOGAN, Utah (AP) - A suspended officer with the recently former North Park Police Agency is asking for the agency’s meeting to discuss his possible termination be open.

The Herald Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1IQ13qq ) that Sgt. John Italasano has been on paid suspension since mid-September and he has been issued a letter of intent to terminate his employment. The 23-year veteran of the police department has been accused of public urination, allowing his son to access the police department’s records management system, insubordination and more.

The agency has planned a closed meeting where members intend to discuss Italasano’s fate and pending appeal, but the officer’s attorney says closing the meeting to the public is a violation of her client’s rights.

The commission will hear evidence from each side on Tuesday to determine if Italasano should be fired.
