Through a Freedom of information request Algonquin Township Road Commissioner Andrew Gasser provided documents similar to those used previously to look at miscellaneous payments to Highway Department employees.
While I have not had time to do the analysis, a Friend of McHenry County Blog has. It is obvious from the comments contained that he is not a fan of Gasser.
The results follow:
Miscellaneous Pay since Andrew Gasser took over the Road Department
$200, 5/18/17 – 9/6/17, Daniel Neumann, Retired
$300, 5/18/17 – 10/20/17, Ryan Greene, Fired, part of 4 union wants hired back before they would renegotiate contract.
$350, 11/26/17- 2/17/18, Ryan Provenzano, part time?, Cronyism by Gasser and Ludzow, if you look he was getting paid OT when not putting in 40 hours regular time.
$700 each, 6/1/17-2/17/18, Dorothy Wildeboer and Colleen Schor, office help, Misc pay came in 12/1/17 check.
$2,100, 11/26/17 – 2/17/18, Andrew Heckman, worked for Bob, left why?, then hired back by Gasser, Some say he supplied shooting video, patronage supporter.
$2,800, 10/15/17 – 2/17/18, Andre Hoerauf, hired by Gasser, I know nothing about him, no dirt?
$2,800, 11/16/17-2/17/18, Luis Torres, Pal of Ryan Provenzono, worked for Supervisors office with Ryan P. before moving to Road District under Gasser. Cronyism!
$3,500 each, 5/18/17 – 2/17/18, Randy Voss, Brian Doubek, Dylan Stern, Daniel Morrison, and Kevin Fitzgerald. Remaining union members, majority of their Misc pay came same time as the three new employees got all of theirs, from before Christmas till now.
$27,450.00 = Total Miscellaneous pay Road Dept since Andrew Gasser took office till now .
Over the same time period, four part time senior Bus Drivers with no benefits got OT and Holiday pay.
- David Turskey, 31.25 OT, 88 Hol.
- Daniel Wacyk, 20.5 OT, 88 Hol.
- John Merkle, 27 OT, 80 Hol. Hired 7/20/17 about.
- Arnold Sylvester, 8 Hol. Terminated before John got hired.
Bob Miller didn’t pay his part time bus drivers OT or Holiday pay.
