Trustee: Village employees used Hodgkins accounts for personal purchases
HODGKINS – Residents attending a Hodgkins Village Board meeting Monday had a lot of questions for board members about the pressured resignation of one public works employee in July and the recent suspension of another for the misuse of village funds.
Even though five trustees voted to fire public works employee Ken Tucker after it was discovered that he had used village accounts to buy personal items in the amount of $142 at Pep Boys, ultimately the decision rested with Village President Noel B. Cummings, Village Attorney John O’Connell said.
Instead of firing Tucker, Cummings decided to issue him a 60-day suspension. Tucker declined to comment for this story.
