Do the County Commissioners (particularly Wheaton) have a FIDUCIARY responsibility to protect county/tax-payer funds?
If they fail at that then our good old boy club member MR.County Prosecutor should be filing LEGAL charges against them
I don't know- if they had an office..
I don't know where the equipment is...
I don't know the didn't submit RECEIPTs as proof for billing..
Hmmm, I don't know if I should pay my taxes to you bums...
I don't know your name Wheaton when it comes election time....
I don't buy other writers comments , "Oh but look at all the good he has done" so we can forgive him for losing 100k of our money?
Lack of broadband is what prevents companies from moving here. It's not just this 100k but the loss of potential future income Wheaton has cost us.
The Cuyahoga county commissioners are sitting in prison for their corruption
We need more INVESTIGATED reporting like this article

What a bunch of crooks. So typical these days. It's so hard just to find someone who wants to do their job and do it right anymore. I got tired of waiting on empty promises from Cue Band and local government. I needed real broadband internet and thank God I found it, right here in Carroll County, right here on page one. Exede Internet from BFE Satellite Solutions. I love it! It's great to know there are still a few hard working, honest, and dependable people out there. Keep up the great work David.

Time for an independent state investigation. Time for a change. Actually, two changes, Wheaton and Ohler.

There are commissioner's meetings every month. I suggest that people start attending them. I also think the state's attorney general should be notified and request an investigation into the county budget. This is not the first time, nor will it be the last, that Carroll County misappropriated funds. Every bureau, from child support to JAFS to the park committee, in this county has been filled with those people who look after themselves instead of the people. Until the residents of the county quit saying someone should do something and start acting then this will continue. It has been going on for 30 years that I know of, with no ramifications in sight.

Please note that the article does state that the %$#@ man from CueBand was endorsed by the the gentleman from the state grant program. He should have known what he was talking about and who he was recommending. Perhaps that is where the investigation should focus. I agree though that we need to know where those materials goods are that we purchased. I'd also love to make $4000 every two weeks.

We were the 1st business installation in Dellroy. And that's about it. We now have an "ornament" attached to the side of our building that does absolutely nothing. I have talked to each person involved through this whole thing, that were to get it hooked up and working, but all I received and still are receiving were promises. BUT MOST OF ALL, I think the taxpayers of this county will end up footing the bill for the "gift" of the Lodge from the looks of how things are being handled at the hands of the commissioners.

Where was the illustrious County Auditor in all this? It is his job to provide checks and balances in all this. Him and that idiotic assistant of his are worthless and should also be held accountable
