Oneida County Taxpayer

White Plains, NY

After $37,500 in overtime wrongly paid to Oneida County Sheriff’s secretary Carolyn Battelene was uncovered by a state Comptroller’s audit, nine other county employees who got unauthorized overtime were also identified.

Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente on Tuesday confirmed the identities of those who incorrectly received overtime.

They are:

* Edward Arcuri, Airport,$2,008.59.

* William Chapple, Sheriff’s Office,$223.70.

* Betsy Damas, Finance Department,$313.33.

* Jennifer Hurley, Social Services Department,$53.87.

* Thomas Marcoline, Probation Department,$23.53.

* Patricia Mitchell, Workforce Development, 1,816.29.

* Douglas Potter, Airport,$511.35.

* Tracey Pugliese, Social Services Department,$27.10.

* Daniel Sullivan, Pistol Permits,$119.66.

County Comptroller Joseph Timpano said his office had decided to look for other incorrectly paid overtime after Battelene’s was discovered. The wrongly paid overtime for most of the nine was the result of human error, he said.

Wow. Timpano should do an investigation into himself. Afterall, he has been taking money which rightfully belongs to the taxpayers. He is the worst comptroller in the world. Oneida County needs a Democratic Comptroller and Mitch Ford is the man for the job!!!!!!!!!! That man has scruples.

Let's see if the City Comptroller does a similiar audit. Oh wait, he's already discovered an overpaid individual right in his office. What you going to do about that Mr. Comptroller? Are there anymore overpaid in your office? NYS General Municipal law requires the money be paid back. Now do what we elected you to do. Get our money back and don't let it happen again.

Why os there no an audit of the County Executive's Office, or the Comptrollers Office ??

There are stories going around of the Comptroller taking money from estates and pocketing it, isnt the money supposed to be into general coffers??

There were no employees from Timpano's office getting overtime, get your facts straight before you post.

It just shows people around here just shoot from the hip and hope it sticks, kinda like what Obama is doing.

Do you people actually think that the all powerful Mike Arcuri is going to allow anyone to take out his cousin Joe Timpano? Mike will stop anyone from his party (and also from the Republican Party) from even getting an endorsement let alone a chance to win. Joe is protected from both sides and he will be Comptroller as long as he wants. The only issue is does he have the stomach to stand up to what is brewing right now, my guess is he will but he will spend many sleepless nights worrying about what people are saying about him.

There is of course on way to prevent Arcuri from doing this, take him out on November 4th. You see, once Arcuri is out the rest of the "Club" just goes away.

No. Buy quirk of law the County Comptroller has a right to this money. This law should have been changed years ago because Mr. Timpano has gotten rich off of it. That's why his "book" salary is so low.
