Question has been raised about the large amount of “miscellaneous” income during the first month that Chuck Lutzow received during his first pay period as Township Supervisor last May.
When I talked with Lutzow he explained that he was Township Clerk for the first half of the month and Township Supervisor for the last half.
Instead of cutting two checks, the payroll clerk designated his salary for Clerk as “regular” and his salary for Supervisor as “miscellaneous.”
Commenters have written that miscellaneous income paid to Road District employees from 2012 through the end of Bob Miller’s term of office also had logical explanations.
However, no records were left to explain the payments, which seemed to peak for most employees just bdefore the Christmas season.
