Prenzler Faccin Settlement Agreement: I voted for the Settlement Agreement which passed the County Board August 21. The County racked up approximately $100,000 in legal bills determining the best way for the Chairman, staff, and county board members to gain access to the Auditor’s files for budgeting purposes. The Agreement ensures the following, (1) Chairman, his staff, and board members access to redacted files from 2009 onwards for budgeting purposes, and, (2) the budget redacted of personal information appearing on line. The two major protagonists Mr. Faccin and Mr. Prenzler seemed happy with the agreement. I didn’t think any additional uncertain and costly litigation approved by the county board would benefit taxpayers.
