Dockett 5 9 2017 340w226h

'If I was an employee, I'd be fired.'

- Trustee Wayne Dockett

Two minutes and forty seconds into this meeting, Trustee Dockett walked out. Because Trustees Otto and Chick were absent, this left only four Trustees, less than the 5 member supermajority required to convene a closed session. Why Dockett walked out on a meeting he himself requested is the question. Adding 2 and 2, the presence of the Township Labor attorney and the Public Safety Director, one could be forgiven for speculating that Dockett requested this meeting to discuss the status of Northfield Township Police Lt. Green, who has been on paid Administrative Leave for many months.

We have broken out each item in the meeting packets.  They are separated into individual documents and and converted into searchable text.  The financial reports show how quickly money is flying out the door and give evidence of the Township's actual indebtedness.  Ex Township Manager Fink's legacy of unplanned-for debt, financial incompetence, and deferred maintenance compounded the crippling foolishness of our Township's past petty dictatorships.  There's a fresh bundle of Bad News in each monthly board packet.
