It turns out that the New Hartford Library is in far better finacial shape then we have been lead t believe. Surprise! The library has a $100,000 budget surplus From the OD: http://www.uticaod.com/communities/newhartfor...

NH Library Board President Linda Romano needs to resign... NOW! A $100,000 surplus discovered now after Linda Romano has spent the last year crying poverty while she was asking for $ 1,000,000 from New Hartford taxpayers. There are only two explanations for this late breaking discovery of surplus cash: A) Linda Romano mislead the people of New Hartford on the true state of the library’s finances or B) she is incompetent in her role as Library President and was unaware of the surplus. Either way, she is not fit for the position of Library Board President

What a crock! Linda Romano told us that if she didn't get a million dollars a year she would have to close the library. Turns out she unnder spent last year's budget by 20%. Who's kidding who?

I think it said in the paper that the NH Library (or some members of the board)are now being sued. I guess that will eat into some of the $100K when they have to defend themselves. I wonder what it is all about...

This IS big news. Only in Utica is it not. Know why? Because most of the public is too uneducated to grasp complex issues and the rest are part of the scams. That's why they will keep getting away with this crap. It's also why this area is looked upon as the laughing stock of the country. These are all loser country bumpkins that couldn't make it outside this area. Maybe with daddy's money, but not on their own. They'd be nobodies in a real area.

You are correct. The OD stated:

"Wiatr is suing library Director Hans Plambeck and 11 current and past members of the Board of Trustees claiming they violated not only his individual rights provided by the state and the U.S. Constitution, but also their own governing policies, laws and codes of conduct.

In Tuesday’s meeting, the board developed an ad hoc committee to deal with the litigation.

Romano would not comment on current litigation."

I wonder if this litigation had anything to do with any board reignations in 2012?

The lawsuite is due in large part to Library Director Hans Plambeck secretly video taping Library Trustee Ed Waitr while he was reviewing documents in the library. Hans then gleefully bragged about it in an email to Library President Linda Romano. Romano approved of Hnas actiosn and took no corective actions against him. Here is the email:http://www.nhconcernedci tizens.com/NH.PUBLIC.LIBRARY/F OILED.DOCS/page.383.pdf

It turns out that the Library Board of Trustees has an opening that needs to be filled immediately. The New Hartford Town Board is approves all appointments to the Library Board. The Library needs good people. Submit your resume and letter of interest to the New Hartford Town Board

There is a schmuck that works at the circulation desk that needs to be fired. He has long hair and is constantly demeaning people publicly. He is the worst incompetent there. I wanted to borrow a CD once. He hands me the case with no CD in it. I opened it at the circulation desk and noticed it was missing. I told him and then he accuses me of losing it even though I never left the circulation desk. Another person found the CD in the back where the moron left it.

So according to your logic somebody that has $10,000 in a savings account should not be allowed to ask their employer for a raise? You think they should be forced to spend down the $10,000 before they can demand more money even if they are saving that money for a rainy day or retirement? The OD article states that the $100K was in a RESERVE fund. A reserve fund is basically like a savings account for an organization and not part of its operating budget.
It appears that the reserve fund was never really known until the last board meeting. Some on the board were surprised when they found out a reserve fund even existed. I have been following this blog. Read the 11 January entry:

Also, the Utica OD even identified that the surplus was a surprise to some NH Library Board Members:

This story keeps getting more interesting with time. I wonder what else the audit by the town will uncover....

The surplus had to be a surprise to Ed. The guy was left in the dark as the captain headed towards the ice berg. How the heck do u lose track of 100 grand? These morons are the last ones I want running my books. Wow! I loved it everytime Ed gets vindicated. Yet, another victory for the common folk.
