It's All Legit!
- The City Council today overwhelmingly approved an ordinance barring aldermen from using a stealth payroll account to hire relatives — after a committee earlier altered the measure to grandfather existing employees.
Under the measure, aldermen would no longer be able to hire relatives, as several have done, but those already paid from the stealth account could continue to work for their aldermen relatives.
“We are not trying to throw anyone out of a job or prohibit those people from continuing to work, but this would apply only to new hires,” Allen said. “So, the current hires would be grandfathered.”
