SBE Funds being returned July 20, 2006

Posted by j-dub in Local, Politics.

You’ll find this on tonight’s County Board agenda:

1. Adoption of Resolution No. 5510 on Return of Funds to the State Board of Elections

I’m sure our good friend Mr. Shelden, who deals with the SBE, might know what the reason for this is. Here’s an excerpt from the resolution:

WHEREAS, the County received notification from the State Board of Elections in a letter to the Champaign County Clerk dated June 15,2006, and a second letter to the Champaign County Board Chair dated July 7,2006 that the County has breached its agreements with the State Board of Elections by fading to comply with the terms of the said agreements as to the following grants:

o EAID Grant
o PPA Grant
o EAI Grant

Well obviously it’s not as exciting as a “smoking gun“, but it’s awfully hypocritical of Shelden to point out flaws in every other office of the County (check out his latest post on Curt Deedrich’s personnel policy) when he isn’t even handling his own business properly.

However, maybe there’s a logical reason for this. Maybe a bunch of other County Clerks had the same problem. If that’s the case, then I’ll shut my mouth; maybe the SBE is being ridiculous about their free money.

Here’s another interesting note: Larry Sapp resigning as Vice-Chair of the Facilities committee….interesting. It’s on the addendum.

Also a resolution to pay for parking at the new nursing home as well.

This meeting should be really interesting with all the news about the area.
