Seems like another England Executive Order has slipped out of the secret files in Gahan's 3rd floor office. Could it be that England is spreading. rumors of another run in 2015 and Gahan wants to squash him in his tracks?

This is the sneakest underhand crap Dougie has ever pulled.

Exclusive: Read it here first on: Freedom Of Speech.

Executive Order Setting Salary for Dennis Smith

In 2009, the City took on the project of implementing a tow in lot for vehicles in violation of city ordinances. The City did not have a tow in lot before this time. Dennis Smith was instrumental in organizing and implementing the tow in lot. Dennis Smith has operated the tow in lot since it began. He has taken on additional duties and responsibilities above and beyond what his original job position required of him. By his efforts, Dennis Smith has been able to increase the revenues of the City through his work with the tow in lot.
During 2009, Dennis Smith did not receive additional compensation for his work with the town in lot above his normal salary relating to his other duties. The Mayor, hereby, acknowledges the benefits received by the City through the additional work performed by Dennis Smith.

Therefore, by the authority vested in me, Mayor of the City of New Albany and the powers granted me under Indiana Code 36-4-7-3, which permits the Mayor to increase the compensation of an employee at anytime during the year, the Mayor authorizes the additional compensation of $10,000 per year to Dennis Smith out of the tow in lot funds.
This is effective immediately.

Dated: 1/13/10

Douglas B. England
Mayor, City of New Albany

So this is why we're paying B-I-G $$$$$ for billable hours to former/current City Attorney Shane Gibson?

Where is the Tribune on this issue? Maybe we need to fax this information to  Charlie Pride at the State Board of Accounts. 

Can anyone verify that Mr. Dennis Smith is currently employed by the City?

This is just another "crock of crap" England pulls when in office....
