The on-going saga pertaining to the improper payment of overtime is now being revealed. Concerned Citizens Group has uncovered documentation which clearly supports the town's payment to Ms. Fairbrother was illegal and must be recouped - IMMEDIATELY!

The legal opinion previously authored by Michael Sciotti, Attorney for Hancock and Estabrook, Syracuse, New York was merely based on limited dialogue between Ms. Fairbrother and what Town Supervisor Earle Reed wanted this law firm to know.

In other words, Earle Reed wanted an opinion that would allow for payment to Mrs. Fairbrother, a payment, he (Mr. Reed) KNEW was improper, illegal and highly unethical, considering his role as Town Supervisor and Chief Financial Officer.

Heathers, we the taxpayers of New Hartford, are providing a free lawyer to former bookkeeper Carol Fairbrother to sue the Concerned Citizens. The Concerned Citizens only crime: exposing government fraud waste and abuse and violations of NY State retrement law. As someone else addmited to on this thread, Tyksinski and Town Attorney Herb Cully know what Fiarbrother did was wrong but are using her case to get back at the Concerned Citizens. In other words, Fairbrother's lawsuit is a SLAPP: a Strategic Lawsuit Agaisnt Public Participation.

BTW, even though this is an ongoing case and important issue, you won't read about it in the OD. The OD reporters like Rob Brauchle and
BRYON Bryon Ackerman are hiding under their desks and never report anything negative about New Hartford. Why, perhaps, they afraid of getting a lawsuit from Fairbrother or afraid the Tyksinski will cut off their access from the Town board meetings. Who knows, but either way, the OD is now a key enabler for New Hartford Town government follies. The only reporter who did a good job covering New Hartford was Liz Cooper.

Either you have the brain of flea or you're trying to disguise your ramblings by sounding like a complete imbecile. Blaming Tyksinski for Fairbrother's situation while suggesting he has the desire or authority to control media access to board meetings makes absolutely no sense.

I suppose you want to see Tyksinski's birth certificate too! LOL

Herbert, thanks for the assist. You are correct. I didn't cause the Fairbrother situation. However, it does suit my purpose to use it to my advantage by supporting her lawsuit against the Concerned Citizens. As for the OD: sure they can come to any board meeting they wish. However I made it clear that if they were to pursue the Fairbrother story or give any publicity to the CC no one from the town would grant any interviews or comments. As you can see its worked well so far to everyones benefit.

So true. I know for a fact there is a standing order to bur this as much as possible.

Well Gino, if you know more please share... I've have seen firsthand how the OD tries to bury any story on Fairbrother or any negative story on New Hartford. The biggest example was a town board meeting a couple of months ago when Bob Brauchle was still covering New Hartford. During that meeting there was a discussion on using Eminent Domain to seize a part of the Yager's property and give it to developer Larry Adler. Brauchle's report on the Town Board meeting in the OD next day made no mention of it. However, the Concerned Citizens gave a full account of the Eminant Domain issue on their blog. Caught with their pants down, the OD had no choice but to run a story on the Yager's Eminent Domain issue a few days later.
The same goes for the Fairbrother issue. Her town provided lawyer has been to court on three occasions asking for an extension so he could “acquire” more evidence. Read about it in the OD? No. Former Town Attorney Jerry Green sued the Concerned Citizens because they supposedly harassed them with FOIL requests. The judge threw that case out three weeks ago. Read about that in the OD? NO! The OD is biased and while they will report negative stories about Utica’s government, they won’t do it for New Hartford. I challenge anyone to demonstrate otherwise.
