The emails that the reporter uncovered were from ICMA and stated that the study's goal was to review organizational structure, not personnel. This is a little butt covering for them, but they allowed confidential information given in the presence of Karen Ellison to be used for personnel issues so they do have culpability. The Village Manager and Karen used this study which the Village has no written contract for, but an PO for 7,000- 2000.00 over budget. Then to continue their witch hunt, Karen concocted a questionnaire to administer to the Public Safety Staff. She did not let them fill it out or think about their answers. She recorded their answers on the questionnaire for them. Unfortunately, we have been unable to get this blank document under the sunshine laws although it by itself contains no personnel information. The questions asked were like:
Have you ever heard Chip Munna cuss at work?
The reporters are also trying to get this document so people will really know what is going on in our Village Hall.
