'Getting handsy with the till' in Superior
City worker goes to jail. (Superior Telegram, 4/29/2011)
Excerpt: The stolen money has been recovered through a benefit withholding, according to City Attorney Frog Prell. He expressed his frustration at the string of employee thefts that have plagued the city since 2005, including a library employee, another employee in the finance department, a firefighter and then-Fire Chief Stephen Gotelaere.
“It’s getting painful to see,” Prell said. “People are ruining good and long-tenured careers by getting handsy with the till and the taxpayers deserve a little better than that.”
