  • “Let’s say they have to fax something to a doctor’s office or to a school on behalf of their child,” she said. “The town may not want the employee to leave their post for the hour to either drive the document over, so they could continue working at their desk, and simply use the [town] fax machine to send it.”

    Hmmm… take a 5 minute break, get on the phone ( which is what we used to do back in the day), and call whom you need to call.. do what you need to do. Otherwise, conscience states that if you are at work to work.. then work, and take care of personal business either before you show up, during a lunch break, or after you punch for the day.. Commom sense goes a LONG WAY.

  • This is comical at so many levels. Use of town equipment is the least of the offenses by Mr. Rothaar. What about doing your own personal business on town hours, which we all know is evident by the audits being so far behind these last few years. Not to mention the tens of thousands of dollars being spent on auditors to do his job. And the outcome is a policy just related to using town equipment???? Not to worry, Mr. Rothaar can just avoid using office equipment to continue on his merry way and laugh at being let off the hook once again. (Roslyn anyone?) We know Sean won’t do anything to him, since he is entrenched in the Republican party. By the way, guess who is charge of the town’s IT department? Yup, it’s none other than Mr. Rothaar himself. Ah, the wisdom of putting the Accounting department in charge of IT.
