protect the taxpayers
from shoddy workmanship, the Second Class Township code requires a
Performance bond be supplied by any Road contractor. For years, the
have illegally manipulated the bond to $10,000, far lower than what the
requires to keep it cheaper for Ken Miller's friend, D&L
(formerly the bankrupt DL Fleck). This issue has been discussed at
meetings and has recently reared it's head again.
At the meeting of August 10, 2015 Jim Wendelgass explained that the
bond has always been 10% of the total contracted amount. I note that
the 10% requirement would be $32,455.00.
BUT 4 YEARS PRIOR
On September 6, 2011, there was a heated discussion with then
Committeeman Tom Helwig, who pointed out the violation (of Township
the Township was only requiring a $10,000 bond on a Road Labor and
Bid contract worth over $300,000 was not proper and should be
calculated on the
TOTAL contract not just on part of the contract. Chairman of the Board
Roadmaster Ken Miller, the attorney (Allan Greenwood) for Stephen V
firm, and Jim Wendelgass all disagreed with Mr. Helwig.
The Roadmaster and Chairman of the Board of Supervisors Ken Miller sits
Board knowing that a low performance bond is illegal and does nothing
it protects his friend, DL Construction. So what's in it for Mr.
Miller, why is
he so willing to protect the illegal activity for so long?
