Most people would not write and sign checks without carefully naming the payee and the amount. At the last council meeting on January 10, the council approved $55,698 to be spent for payroll. That’s all that is known. The number of checks issued is unknown. The amounts of each check and payees on each – also unknown.
The council was informed of only the total amount of the batch of checks. No questions were raised by any council member as to the details of any of those disbursements. Essentially the council appears to be approving blank checks written by their chosen administrators.
