End-of-year bonuses raise ire of board chairman
Severson acknowledges nearly $25,000 paid by Miller, Phillips, Bates not illegal
Just under $25,000 in bonuses were given out of three county departments at the end of last fiscal year, says Grundy Board Chairman Ron Severson, and although this is not illegal, he called it a moral problem.
The Finance Committee met Tuesday and Severson alerted the members to the bonuses out of the county clerk's, treasurer's and state's attorney's offices. The bonuses in the state's attorney's office were given under former State's Attorney John Bates, not under current State's Attorney Jason Helland.
"There is no money missing, no illegalities going on, and it's partly our fault, too, for not looking close enough," Severson said.
