The reports seem to indicate that no matter how well intentioned the supervisors may have been, they were asleep at the switch. It will be worse when there are only three supervisors to oversee all the boards and budgets. The savings on salaries may be lost many times over due to a lack of supervision and attentiveness.

There are 57-58 counties in Iowa that have 3 supervisors and many of them have a larger population base than Union County. So we should expect our guys to bite the bullet and earn their salaries & benefits by putting in more time as needed. Some of these boards only meet once a month, some quarterly and some once a year. Suck it up guys and get to work!

The verdict is in. Union County (citizens and txpayers) lose on all charges except fraudulent non-disclosure. That means that the defendant knew something important but did not tell. Had any supervisor asked the apprpriate questions, the defendant would have answered, or actually been liable for damages. The county was "sold a bill of goods"; "bought a pig in a poke"; was "taken for a ride"; or any other way you want to say let down by our elected representatives. Next time a deal comes along that sounds too good to be true, let's all think a bit loger and harder. But, Union county is awarded $1

The actions taken by the board years ago raises question "What the hell were they thinking"
we should never be a bank loaning money and never not secure something when we do.
The mess has put a tax burden on the entire community.
Those we elected have failed miserably. And one may never trust in them agian.
I would imagine that in the future we must all keep a watch on those who we believe can do the job because they have proved they are not smart enought nor have the financial wisdom to make those decisions.
Thanks all of you for raising our taxes to the point of no return while you get every benifit possible.
And as for your expense accounts I do hope the new borad runs a full page add showing how much of the taxpayers money you pocked.
Checking roads and getting mileage is not your job. I do believe the men in secondary roads can handle that without your help. No more NEW YORK STRIPE meals no more waste by those who are suppose to be looking out for US> THEY LOOKING OUT FOR US OR WERE THEY PADDING THIER INCOME BY USING THE EXPENCE ACCOUNTS??????????
