Where did all the money go?
That seems to be the question that was asked over and over again at a packed Roseland Town Council meeting Friday evening.
Friday night Roseland held a special public town council meeting, however, the discussion quickly turned to the town financial crisis.
The town attorney asked where the $76,000 in major moves was spent.
Moreover, dozens pointed fingers complaining about the various lawsuits that have forced the town to go almost bankrupt.
“Rosemary Penn, she sued the town. Mike Shalk sued the town..We also have Kelly Catanzerite, we have Aaron Catanzerite, we have Kim Hammons, she sued the town. All of these people sued the town... when they sued the town it takes money,” said David Snyder of the Roseland Town Council.
Charley Shields said,” If you all remember, we were asking for a lot of data, financial info, for months, which we did not get. So therefore we had to rely on David's expertise on finances and also Cheryl's expertise on finances, which we know now was all wrong.”
According to Deputy Clerk Dorothy Snyder, the town only has $14,000 left in the bank for payroll.
Some residents commented that once again Clerk Treasurer Cheryl Gridley was not at the meeting to help clear up some of the mess.
