BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: Section 1. Minnesota Statutes 1988, section 383A.287, subdivision 2, is amended to read: Subd. 2. [ORGANIZATION.] The county board, by a majority vote, shall appoint
fiveseven persons to the personnel review board to serve four-year staggered terms. Any vacancies shall be filled by a majority vote of the county board for the unexpired term. Each member shall hold office until a successor has been appointed. Membership on the personnel review board shall be limited as follows: (a) each member shall take an oath of office before assuming the duties of office; (b) no person shall be a member of the personnel review board while holding a public office, or while holding office in a political party above the state legislative district level, nor for two years after having held that kind of public or political office; and (c) each member shall be a resident of the county and if a member becomes a nonresident, the member forfeits the office. Sec. 2. Minnesota Statutes 1988, section 383A.294, is amended by adding a subdivision to read: Subd. 6. [PRODUCTION OF DOCUMENTS.] The personnel director may make a written request to an employee to produce relevant documents or to a person to appear for the purpose of giving relevant oral statements or testimony relating to a disciplinary action of an employee. An employee who is the subject of a disciplinary action may make a written request to the personnel director for the production of relevant documents or for the appearance of a person to give relevant oral statements or testimony relating to the disciplinary action. The request for the appearance of a person may be to appear and testify at a hearing of the personnel review board or to appear at a specified place to give an oral statement prior to a hearing of the personnel review board. The personnel director, or the employee upon receipt of a request for production of relevant documents, shall furnish the requesting party the documents within ten days of receipt of the written request. A person to whom a request for an appearance has been made shall appear at the time and place designated in the request. If a party to whom a request for relevant documents has been made fails to furnish the documents to the requesting party within ten days of receipt of the request, the requesting party may make an application to the district court for a determination that the refusal to produce the documents was unreasonable. If a person to whom a request for appearance has been made fails to appear at the time and place designated in the request, the party making the request for appearance may make an application to the district court for a determination that the failure to appear was unreasonable. If the district court determines that a failure to produce requested documents or to appear was unreasonable, it may assess costs not exceeding $100 to the requesting party against the refusing party or person. Sec. 3. [LOCAL APPROVAL.] This act takes effect the day after the Ramsey county board complies with Minnesota Statutes, section 645.021, subdivision 3.
