Attached below Is a link of an anonymous letter sent to the City County Observer. This letter was sent to members of the Vanderburgh County Commissioner by County Council Finance Chairman Jm Raben.
It is our understanding this letter was sent to and received by all members of the Vanderburgh County Commissioners just before the vote to terminate the employment of the Director of Burdette Park.
In this letter County Council Finance Chairman Jm Raben reminded members of the Vanderburgh County Commission that requests to fill vacancies must be approved by the County Council prior to offering employment. This letter states all salaries are established by the County Council salary Ordinance and are subject to County Council Funding.
Attempt by the CCO to reach members of the County Commission for a response concerning this letter went unanswered. We also contacted County Council Finance Chairman, Jim Raben for comments concerning this letter he sent to the Vanderburgh County Commissioners but calls went unanswered.
It looks like County Commissioners Cheryl Musgrave and Ben Shoulders erred when they voted to terminate the employment of the Director of Burdette Park without getting approval of the Vanderburgh County Council.
THIS IS A DEVELOPING STORY
