Chairman's comments, accusations out of line ?
Public input just may be the best thing on the agenda for Tuesday's (10-14) Iroquois County Board meeting. The 9 o'clock meeting is the Administrative Center in Watseka.
A public outburst is what many believe is needed to put a stop to what several emergency responders say is a "crash & burn agenda."
Volunteer professionals serving on governing boards are expressing their disgust in being labeled as "incompetent, neglecting their duties, mismanaging their responsibilities."
That was the accusation from County Board Chairman Rod Copas about the former Ford-Iroquois Public Health Department. Now, it's the 9-1-1- Board under fire. Copas has pointed to "mismanagement" and 911 members "unwilling to work with the County Board.
Several members of the boards and emergency responders take exception with the accusation that they're neglectful or mismanaging their duties.
Some say it's impossible to work with someone with a "seek and destroy agenda."
