It's been a wild week in Roseland....
And it's not over yet.
First, the Town Clerk shut down the town hall until April 9th.
The same clerk also paved the way for Dorothy Snyder’s return to town government.
Believe it or not, the situation could end on an even more bizarre note.
The Town Council has threatened to sue to try and force a re-opening of the Town Hall.
The sign at the Pizza King restaurant has changed,
But Roseland is still a town in turmoil.
“You know everybody keeps asking when is Snyderville going back up on the sign?” says restaurant owner Greg Laskowski. “Snyderville never really left it's still there,
It’s just in a different form now you know.”
This week, Dorothy Snyder was appointed Chief Deputy Clerk, a little more than two months after her term on the Town Council expired.
Then, town clerk Cheryl Gridley managed to come up with the one thing that the town would find even more shocking…
She closed the Town Hall.
The locked doors proved that the traditional business hours of 7:30 till 3:00 had indeed gone out the window.
“I didn't realize such a part time job could be so stressful that she couldn't come into work you know,” says Laskowski.
Meantime, sympathy could be found across the street at the barber shop. “She is, I mean that girl is sick, they're harassing her. If she done something wrong, they could say hey let's get together and see what's the problem like civilized people,” said Roseland resident Tony Rulli.
The state of Indiana will enter the picture on Monday.
That’s when an audit of the town finances will begin.
The Town Council has scheduled an executive session for Monday afternoon, to discuss possible litigation.
