Rising to the level of documenting in the Fish Lake Township January meeting minutes, Supervisor Diane Larkin made the “stellar” motion to “purchase ten rolls of stamps before the [price] increase.” On January 27, 2013, the U.S. Postal Service raised its First Class Mail rates by one cent, from $0.45 to $0.46 to mail a one ounce letter. With 100 stamps per roll, and a cost savings of $1.00 per roll, Supervisor Larkin’s timely motion saved Fish Lake Township a whopping $10.00!!
So what was thrifty Supervisor Larkin thinking when the township finally completed paying off the 2001 140H Caterpillar road grader and could begin to save $20,000 per year in equipment payment costs? She voted to get rid of the paid off equipment and purchase a brand new Caterpillar 140M road grader to the tune of $246,025!
Why doesn’t Supervisor Diane Larkin care more about the taxpayers than to be penny-wise and dollar foolish with their money?
