As you may know, the village's 2013-2014 budget is available online.
What was NOT available online, however, was the "Payroll/Salary & Fringe Benefit Analysis".
This is what the League of Open Government in Croton had to say on the subject:
LOGIC - League for Open Government In Croton "The village decided not to include the Payroll and Fringe Benefit Analysis in the budget documents that it posted online, explaining that they could instead be found in the library, or in the village office, or that they could be obtained via FOIL request. Making the public FOIL the documents strikes us as a ridiculous waste of time and resources."
Editor's Note: We couldn't agree more. Fortunately for those of us who can't take time off from work or our busy schedules to view these documents at the municipal building or the library, L.O.G.I.C. has done what the village would not--without a FOIL request that is. Allowed you to see the documents online; the public can review them at http://tinyurl.com/d2f5kbl

Thank you L.O.G.I.C.!
Well look at those numbers. It is good to be king.ReplyDelete
I think it's a sad reflection on the board. Then again with no opposition other than in the courts, why should they care.ReplyDelete
What shameful behavior. They are so out control and the people who keep voting for them obviously don't mind having their pockets picked. We won't be retiring here that's for sure. Thanks for the info Logic. LindaReplyDelete
I hate Florida but at this rate, we have no choice. Thanks for posting this online. It is helping us make some hard decisions.Delete
