WOW! that nailed it!
As I read the minutes from Nov.11th special meeting I began to realize that maybe the village is not being very forthcoming to the residents . Ms. Dettling recomended dismissal of office clerk due to job performance ! Is this the real reason or is it due to a amount of funds missing ? The taxpayers of the village deserve the truth.If job performance is the real issue why quit here? Why not look at street and water dept. heads ? No answers for elevated water consumptions ,either people are being told they have a leak or dept. head simply blows people off with no response at all .Sorry but the residents dont work for you .As far as street dept. ,well lets see there is apparently no direction for the workers due to the fact of just looking around .The village signs (stop, parking ,snow ect.)are so neglected that they cant even be read . Now that winter closes in ,I wonder if the snow removal will be as pathetic as in the past .I believe many residents feel this way but dont say alot because it has fallen on deaf ears .Why arent there some changes made in these two examples . Is it because of relation on village council or the good ole boys club? Maybe get rid of the new village adminstrator and let these two keep running the village the way they see fit !
