Fosterburg Water District Parties Exceed $19,784.00

Fosterburg, IL. (ECWd) –

After receiving financial records dating back to 2008, it has become more apparent this water district thinks it is a private company and thinks it can expend public funds on anything it pleases – the law be damned.

As an example, since December 2008, the Fosterburg Water District has spent at least $19,784.04 just in parties.

This does not include the $50 per month, of public funds, being deposited into a “Christmas Account” – we are currently attempting to reconcile those funds and how they were spent.

When looking at this – ask yourself if your water rates are too high.

    This is absolutely amazing and scary. I can’t believe that what they are/have been doing is legal. I am familar with board retreats – where a board may meet somewhere for the day – news media and public are notified and can come (no one usually shows up,) but they can. There is agenda & there are minutes taken, The outcomes presented at the following board meeting.
    These seem to have no purpose except a party and outing. The taxpayer shouldn’t be paying for these.

    I’m afraid to ask why they needed to stock up on paper towels and toilet paper for the $3,137.17 board outing. If you FOIA the pictures, ensure you label them as NSFW (not safe for work).
