Ombudsman Issues Investigative Report On Misconduct Of Stuart Street Superintendent (Updated)
By Peggy Schlichter
Update – It has been brought to my attention that the skid loader used by Bob to clear his drive last week was rented from John Schwinger. It is identical to the one owned by the city and was dropped off at the city yard for his use.
The Ombudsman Office has completed their investigation and issued this investigative report.
While I find the report interesting in its findings today I also remember seeing Mr. Airhart using the city skip loader in his drive last week just before this last snowfall pushing the old snowfall back out of the way. Since the city has been in receipt of this report for at least 30 days and responded back to the Ombudsman Office it is hard to believe that Mr. Airhart was unaware of the report findings and persists in flagrantly violating city employee standards. Let alone a city administrator and council who have failed to take any appreciable disciplinary action over the years.
One can only hope that with a new mayor taking office next month there is some hope that city personnel problems will begin to be addressed in a firm, fair and timely manner.
