Auditor of State Dave Yost says No Loan for East Cleveland
November 24, 2014 – East Cleveland Ohio — Financial planning and supervision group met for the last time in 2014 and welcomed Ohio Auditor of State Dave Yost for the very first visit this year. Unfortunately the visit was to deliver in person a loan disapproval to Mayor Gary Norton. (View Yost Letter Here – CLICK Here)
Mayor Gary Norton and Finance Director Jack Johnson boycotted this meeting after Auditor Yost sent them a letter of disapproval for any loans. Also absent from this essential meeting were also City Councilmen Brandon King, Thomas Wheeler, Mansell Baker and Nathaniel Martin.
With no chance for a loan it now becomes a puzzle how the last payrolls in 2014 will be handled and Dave Yost indicated that if the employees checks bounce that they may must not work. In hopes of having enough money to pay employees Norton has turned on all of the previously blinking off traffic lights and traffic camera on.
EC City Council President Barbara Thomas indicated that there is a planned Town Hall Meeting for December 1, 2014. To date there have been no Robot Calls or flyers printed to let the city residents to know about this meeting.
The next meeting for this group will be in January 2014 however it appears that with no funds to manage and a mayor who does not show up for critical meetings. The only reason a meeting with the citizens should be held at this point is to discuss filing bankruptcy or merging with The City of Cleveland Ohio.
