Around noon today the Council staff went into a full blown panic because there was no direct deposit of their paychecks into their accounts There was no money to pay anyone actually. Of course we can’t verify if the Council members got their huge checks…because you know they always come first above all else.
We do know Marge was running all around trying to offer assurances. But the bottom line is, there is no money to pay the workers. Usually the investors wire the cash in and they didn’t. Maybe they forgot. But those on grants and federally funded programs have their own accounts and their money should be available.
They’re supposed to be able to cash their checks Monday. But it’s a signal of bad things to come. It’s the kind of problem that keeps the chair and vice chair from attending meetings…isn’t it?
