Rumor has it that king klug and some members on council treated the owner of the second oldest business in capac, Capac Construction, very badly at its last council meeting. So badly it was that visitors to the meeting felt bad for Mr. Vargo when all he was trying to do was point out lack of following village specs on a street repair project that Lumbardo did,, potential fraud and mis-use of taxpayer dollars. All klug could do was keep the clock countdown current and stare at the floor. Is this the best we got to run capac? Why does klug ttreat capac business owners so badly? Is it because he cant run and keep one viable for a long time? Is it because he is jealous of what other business owners have done and he can not do the same? Is it because he has filed bankruptcy twice now and still can achieve what he wants without a free handout? Klug was said to be so arrogant at the meeting to all in attendance, that some thought former village president, Pete kavanaugh would look good back in his old chair.
Then the verbal arguments between Liz and Pete over planning issues was even more telling that klug has lost control of his council and as no clue how to carry forward in capac. Ooooh, by the way, klug said at the meeting that he and he alone decides who goes on or leaves the planning commission. Well Mr. Klug you are WRONG!,, you can make your nominations for planning or zba boards, but it is Village council which approves or denies your recommendations, not you. That is state and village law mark, pick up a copy and read it or at the very least have someone read it to you. They can help you with the big words.

I think it time that the lawyers get involved now at point out legally to klug and his court how things are to be done. We should start with the multiple violations of the open meetings act, violations in village law and rampit mismanagement of tax dollars. I hope to start this endeavor very soon.

Klug and Lombado are buddies that have each others backs. The council also approved 500 dollars for porta johns for the carl sholz benifit car show. I think carl neefs to pay for them himself. After all he makes about ten thousand dollars for this.i

This is a shame, there is no way that the village of Capac council should have approved $500 for portajohns.

How ridiculous!

This whole Klug/Lombardo scenario is gagging!

Klug works for Carl Schultz at the junk yard. So klug getting the village to pay the tab for the porta-johns scores big points with his other boss. Klug should have recused himself for the whole matter, but hey it's capac, who cares. And yes, Carl Schultz makes good money on that car show, why do you think he keeps doing it. He gets the village to pay for porta potties, local merchants to pay for trophies, lots of free help, what's left... Flyers and tee shirts. It is a great car show and brings people into this hopeless little town, so full speed ahead klug, break all the rules you can to benefit your buddies, your good at it so far. Your days may be numbered now.

Yes we do. If carl wants this show he should pay for it himself. Yes it does bring in alot of peoplebut we tax payers should not have to pay fir it. He gives us local no breaks on parts or free entry to the show.

I was under the impression that Council is only supposed to use tax payer money for public service. Is this legal?

Not sure on the council vote, but Why of course Sholtz benefits the most. Capac does not get anything out of it any more. Used to have capac days the same weekend, but they gave that up because klug and council were to good to pitch in and help. You know, to many capac chiefs not enough Indians.

Is not exactly what Klug and the other members did why the former mayer of Detroit is on trial for? Think about it?

I have been saying this for so long!!!!! In my opinion, this is a situation that runs very parallel to what has happened to the former Mayor and the city of Detroit.

The county prosecutors have been given many insights into this issue, and nothing ever seems to come to pass. Maybe a minor slap on the hand, never any serious investigating or any charges are brought.

There seems to be some type of immunity here, that perhaps the people of Capac would have to go higher than the county prosecutor,maybe the Attorney General, I am not sure.

If anyone does know perhaps you could post your knowledge...

Is there such a conspiracy in Capac , that these village council members work so very hard at to keep it a secret from the upper government, I truly believe that there is.

Something has been wrong, very wrong for a very long time. When you read some of the comments from like Frustrated Capacian, and Ron,and many others... they are posting some very intelligent data, they know from experience of living here and observing the comings and goings of Klug and his cohorts. The people that post these truths, are alerting the village residents that something has been awry for quite some time.

I think it is time to heed the warning. I hope it is not too late.

Thank You for your kind words. Yes, I have been trying for years to get the truth out about what klug and his court are up too. They break the rules and laws all the time, but yet they are accountable to know one, so they keep on keeping on. They know dam well we know what is going on, and the minute you take them to task, you get what Joe Vargo did last monday, scorned and belittled by the most arogant village president we have ever had. Klug could not manage a feild trip into an opened ended cardboard box, but yet he is the so-called man in this town, just ask him. If klug hates you, for whatever reason, he will back lip you to all his crownies and ignore you in public. We have to keep these council members held to the fire of doing it right. This last fiasco on the street repair could and should get ugly. Mr. Vargo, I think has shown potentitial bid collusion, big rigging and fraud involving a sitting council member and the village DPW Dept. I bet the village has nothing to document anything, like they do all the time, so that alone will get them. OOH by the way, I was told by a village employee to check out Act 317 of 1968. It is a state law that states that village officials CAN NOT get public contracts. Hummm, is it only exempt in Capac?

The Attorney General has been contacted more than once. The Village is a tiny town, I think for many in elected positions it holds no political clout. We are a low to moderate income community, so there is no loss to politicians in financial support for ignoring us. We have abysmal turnout at voting polls. By taking on the cause of Capac citizens, those in high places have nothing to gain.

Plus we have a tangled web of good old boy small town nonsensical politics that would require a great deal of investigation to get to the bottom of things. Heck, our local papers will not even do an ounce of investigative reporting on the abuses going on here. We just are not going to get any help from the outside.

You are very welcome! I have not lived here for very long, but in the amount of time that I have been here,something just has not seemed right to me in regards to the way things are handled within the village council.

I do work at night, so I am unable to attend the meetings, but I do try to find out what transpired at the meetings, from one of my friends that are able to attend.

I have been seriously troubled for the last couple of years now on many issues that have taken place in Capac.

I can tell by your posts, that you are someone that truly knows what is going on and I applaud you for your honesty and frankness.
I also can tell that you really care about this community. I believe that the knowledge you possess, will at some point be a benefit to the village of Capac.

I do hope that you continue to post on this Topix forum, and inform those of us that are reading these posts,to the truths that the citizens of the village of Capac will have to face in the coming days due to this defunct council that has been running the show, which has literally ran the village of Capac into dangerous territory.

Thank you!

Thank you for the info Ron, I was not aware that the Attorney General had been contacted.

In the short time that I have lived here, I have been witness to the low voter turnout, it is a shame.

I know that there are many on here, that just want to complain and whine about things and they do not even get out there and vote, but I also know that of the voters that do vote,( I vote) and the ones that do vote for change, seem to be outnumbered. It is almost like getting on a treadmill and never getting off.

In my opinion it does seem like quite the tyranny has taken place within the Capac Village Council for some time, and they do not seem to want to release the reigns of power, therefore the citizens of Capac all suffer, sadly even the ones that do show up to vote and get involved.

The thing that I just cannot quite grasp is how can they keep getting away with what they get away with?? I mean I think I have the jist of what a good ole boys club is, but this seems to have overstepped the boundaries, the outcomes of all of these situations have really crossed the lines over and over again,why are they not held accountable for their actions, especially when they have broken laws??

I am sure if I broke the law, the authorities would come for me. Why do they not have to answer to anyone?

Makes me wonder what is really at stake here, and just how far they will go, to keep the conspiracy in motion.

There must be some serious, and I mean serious secrets that they want no one to ever find out. I wonder how much money has been skimmed from the village of Capac and put into God knows who's pockets?? Maybe that's what it is..

Thanks again for your candidness.

We even had a St. Clair County Judge determine it was not the responsibly of the county to enforce village law. Hopefully having some challengers on the ballot will help bring about change, most of these guys are re elected by default, nobody runs against them. I do not know what the answer is. I agree it is unbelievable what they are able to get away with.

I see, so if the county will not help to enforce the village laws, the only way out of this is to have someone run against the incumbents, and then have the voters come out and vote for the new guys,and boot the old guys out??

I wonder if there is a way to get some type of an FBI investigation initiated against the current village council members to do some checking into what wrongs they have been doing, get documentation and then file charges.

Except the new guys are just recycled old ones. Nothing here ever changes. Costs go up, quality goes down.

It is not likely the police will get involved. Someone filed a police report against a Granny for voter fraud awhile back. She got a knock on her door while she was in her bathrobe feeding the grandkid's pancakes. There was an expensive investigation. It was splattered over all of the papers. The accusations were false, no wrongdoing was found. The police felt burnt, got dragged into nasty politics by a fat cat politician who lost his seat because he deserved to. We have a sordid history here.
