CROWN POINT | Fewer night meetings and less credit card use may be on tap for the Lake County Solid Waste Management District in the wake of the district's decision earlier this month to sever tie with its longtime executive director.
The Lake County solid waste district terminated the contract of its longtime executive director Wednesday amid accusations he misled board members about a $751.14 designer purse and accessories given to a female subordinate.
At least $107,000 in annual salary and compensation, a $600-per-month government funded take-home vehicle and a district credit card used for thousands of dollars in meal purchases and gas annually could all be at risk Wednesday.
Jeff Langbehn's 21-year tenure as director of the Lake County solid waste district has survived a multimillion-dollar lawsuit settlement, a failed trash-to-ethanol contract costing taxpayers thousands more and a nearly successful legislative attempt to strip his agency's taxing authority.
In the real world, when an employee lies to his or her boss they are fired on the spot.
At least four Lake County solid waste district officials said they were misled last month by district Executive Director Jeff Langbehn regarding the purchase of a $751.14 graduation gift for a female government employee.
Margaret Langbehn was a kind, generous woman who put her family above everything else, said her son, Mark Langbehn.
