A full time person is typcally interpretted by the various references in state law to an IT person. The Village does not have one.
Once, again, how about posting the "various references" you claim to cite? Or is this just another lie? Typical Getty answer - probably got it from our village attorney that we pay for to cover your failure to comply with the state law.
Interesting

I think Getty has been doing just fine. With all the corrupt political manners out there in the world, I truly believe Chris is doing what he can to clean up our town at the very least. I said it before in the past when I voted four years ago for him.. if you have a problem with something, take it to him and he will help. He can be found around town every day. He lives right here in Lyons. Also, for the record, if you no longer live in Lyons, you shouldn't trash our town... it's only getting better and better. He has so many great events for the children and my kid is finally living the experiences I did as a child. Look how many places cancelled the firework show this year on the 4th! And guess what, they all drove to Lyons to watch ours!
Yea right!

Welcome to Lyons! TLC has been disbanded since 2010. Not involved at all anymore. Two parties this election: the ones in power now and a new party, Village Independent Party. The new party is the way I'm going.

Just so you know how "open and honest" our dear mayor is - I was able to post a comment on the "Village of Lyons" blog. It was asking about the so-called business "growth" in our community. Guess what? The comment has been removed. Gone. So much for allowing the people who pay for it have a voice. Once again, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

1. Using MY money to put his name on village vehicles.
2. Claiming to be "transparent" when he hides everything he can and does everything possible to prevent citizens from knowing what is going on.
3. Failing to produce a budget (as required by law).
4. Appoint a convicted felon to a board.
5. Using taxpayers money to hire a publicity agent for himself.
6. Taking ten's of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from businesses having contracts with the village.
7. Hiring people without ever posting the opening or qualifications.
8. Having the dedication plaques removed from the village hall, then claiming he has no knowledge of it.
9. Allowing a convicted felon to have unlimited access to the village hall and to give orders to village employees.
10. Failing to maintain the village web site - as required by law.
11. Refusing to answer questions put to him at an open meeting.
12. Selling insurance to liquor licensees and claiming he didn't know it was a conflict of interest.
13. Making claims about our "growing business economy" when there is no real growth at all.

Need I say more?
