Granby DPW?

Does anybody know if there was a manager fired at the town dpw department? I heard something this morning but not sure if it was Granby or not.

I understand the police were investigating the loss of about 60 gallons of diesel fuel. Concurrently the supt. of public works resigned according to the office of the town manager. Any connection? Let's wait until the police investigation is complete. Just note the town had no problems while Messenger and Lyons were in charge. Just saying...

Mr Observer I would caution you to not try to investigate whats being investigated. Usually when there is a scandal the manager is ousted. Usually the theft of gasoline is an urban problem and is committed by those who are broke. It is possible that somebody from outside of the department took the gas maybe somebody from out of town. There have been numerous break ins in my town as well as granby suffield and simsbury.

I wonder if there was ever any fuel even stolen. Its easy for an audit to be erratic when so much fuel gets pumped to fill up all the bulldozers trucks and steamrollers.

Ive been reading this site for years and never felt the need to comment until this story. I hope there wasnt a theft but why would somebody resign unless there was.

Where can I find the article to which the preceding 2 responses refer??

George posted the link. Either this supervisor was involved with the theft or it is a coincidence of epic proportions
George February 13, 2014 at 11:36 AM
Steve, it's in the Hartford Courant. If you copy and paste this link into a new web page it will bring you straight to the article. I'm sure he was involved with the theft, there's no way someone resigns if they weren't responsible. http://www.courant.com/community/windsor/hc-granby-missing-fuel-0211-20140210,0,826524.story

Need to really investigate the million dollars worth of new vehicles that were processed thru 522 Salmon Brook, Granby, to see who paid the proper Taxes!!

George. Thank You very much for the copy-paste. I have accessed the original and hard copied it. After due consideration, I surmise that someone was Naughty and that the G.P.D. will get to the bottom of it and that reparation Will Be Made. As to the resignation, though the timing is dubious at best, there may be no tie between the 2 incidents. Let us not use this forum as an outpost for blind mud slinging.

Several weeks have gone by. Any resolution reached by Granby Police regarding the alleged missing diesel fuel?
Happy Percy March 08, 2014 at 07:04 PM
Government should be the main complaint, obviously they cant run things correctly. Take for instance the Chairman of the Board of Finance for Granby, CT that has at least four (4) cars junked at State Line Oil. Are taxes being paid on these cars? Why is the eyesore allowed, anybody else would be fined! Ethics have completely disappeared from people that govern this country, ie. go to MA to take pictures up Woman's skirts. What a country we have become, there was a reason we left England behind!!
