I can never understand why employees get such a large number of sick, vacay, personal days and never use them. Why do they get so many to begin with? If they don't use them, they should lose them. They should not be able to cash them in and make a profit off our tax dollars. And a car? With no apparent restrictions? Time to shut down the candy store.ReplyDelete
That's some contract for the village manager. For such a small village???!!! Nice for her. BAD for the taxpayers. This place has become almost unaffordable to live.ReplyDelete
I watched last night's board meet right up to the very end. What struck me most was how little control the board used over the enthusiastic "let's ban plastic bags" folks. I guess if the cause is near and dear, that kind of behavior is o.k.ReplyDelete
