You have to wonder just how much Mayor Paletko really supports Seniors in the City? After all he just allowed his department head to put in for a new lease car that if not investigated would have cost $12,000.00. That money would have come from the CDBG grant. As most of you are I’m sure are aware that lease car isn’t covered under the CDBG grant. A fact I’m sure Mayor Paletko was aware of, but why not he got away with it before. Yep there was a leased car that did cost thousands from the CDBG Grant. This because when the Mayor hired the new CEDD Director he promised him a car. Not just any car would do as part of his package. No it had to be a leased car. So when the Mayor was taking 12,000.00 away from the CDBG Grant he was taking away from the seniors in this City. That money could have gone years ago to hire a senior coordinator. A coordinator the recreation department had to do without. Why? There wasn’t enough money. There was enough money. It was just being used on a New Car. Oh so sorry Mr. Mayor I’m making speeches about this.
