Gloucester, VA County Truck Number 67 At McDonald's Again

Parks and Recreation truck number 67 was seen again at McDonald's this past morning, Monday, December 16th, 2013 at about 8:15 AM.  This is the same truck that was here last week on Monday.  Below is the county employment code from the county's own website.  Chapter 13 of the employment code.

Section 13-27: Use of County Vehicles

County vehicles are provided for the use of employees and authorized
volunteers in conducting official business of the County. Personal use of County
vehicles is prohibited. Certain employees are required or allowed to take a County
vehicle home at night, as they are required to respond to the needs of the County
outside of normal business hours. Take home vehicles must be approved by the
County Administrator who shall maintain a current record of all authorized take home vehicles.

Operators of County vehicles should practice “defensive driving” and
anticipate and observe the actions of other drivers and control their own vehicle in
such a manner so as to avoid an accident. Operators of County vehicles and all
passengers therein shall properly use seat belts at all times. Injury resulting from a failure to wear seat belts may constitute gross negligence on the part of the individual and upon case review may jeopardize an employee’s eligibility for relief normally provided under the worker’s compensation or disability claims.  

Above is the link to the information so everyone can verify this for themselves.  We don't make this stuff up.  For 8 months we have been reporting this abuse.  For 8 months the abuse continues with nothing being done about it.  It would seem fair to say that Brenda Garton, county administrator and Ted Wilmot, County Attorney are not doing their jobs but are instead failing to do their jobs in protecting the county, the taxpayers and the Board of Supervisors from waste, fraud and abuse as well as increased costs and expenses as well as increased liabilities.  We have filed a complaint form with human resources about this employee who is very clearly in violation of the above policy.

  Since it is clear that neither the county administrator nor the county attorney are capable of doing their jobs, they should be termed for cause without any further form of compensation whatsoever.  One also has to question the department heads as to why they are unable to properly communicate to their own employees what the policy states and then make sure that the employees maintain this agreement.  The above employee driving truck 67 has already been reported and nothing has been done about it.  Employees continue to use county vehicles for their own personal use all the time with no regard for employment policies and the county officials are letting them?

Gloucester County Government Employee Waste Encore Pictures

We just asked what Gloucester County government employees could possibly do for an encore.  We wrote that to soon.  We were sent yet another email of another incident regarding a county government employee.  This is vehicle number 600, same as stated earlier as seen at Hardee's by the courthouse area of Gloucester.  This time it's Monday, July 29th, 2013, same day, at 10:45 AM at the Hardee's in Hayes.  Did he get a memo to stay out of the Hardee's at the courthouse area and decided to go to the one on the other side of the county.  He was seen heading back up to the courthouse area after leaving Hardee's parking lot in Hayes.

  So now county employee's are driving farther away to abuse wasting gas to eat every few hours?  Do we need to post the phone numbers on this site for the Hardee's restaurants so people can get ahold of county employees when they can not be found at work?

  The other fast food businesses should file a lawsuit against the county for unfair business practices as all the county government employees are playing favorites here?  Sounds absurd?  Well so do today's multiple stories on county government employees as well as Friday's.  This just never seems to end.  Is the county going to give tax credits back to Gloucester citizens for all of this waste?  And they want to forever increase taxes, everyone can see why right here.  There is no leadership in this county for government employees.  This all starts at the top and works it's way down and it's clear that it is out of control.

Enraged Gloucester County Employee Chases Picture Taker In County Vehicle.

We received this photo from another person regarding vehicle number 63, B&G Maintenance, Gloucester County government driving a Gloucester County vehicle conducting personal business while driving a county vehicle wasting taxpayer money.  The person who sent us these pictures also told us an incredible story.

  The person who was driving this vehicle saw another person taking his picture and went after that person in this truck, chasing that person around the parking lot and almost ramming that person's private vehicle.  Was this because the county employee knew he was doing something wrong?  Was he told on Friday that he is not to use a government vehicle for personal use and did so anyway and was mad because he was caught?

  The other person who took this picture and witnessed that event said they immediately hid their camera as they did not want to be his next victim.  He was speeding around the parking lot in front of Tractor Supply to get the other person.

  This is just insane folks.  County employees are out of control and you can only blame those in charge as they are not in charge as they are supposed to be.  What do these folks have planned for an encore?

More New Pictures Of Gloucester County Employees Abusing Taxpayer Dollars

Monday, July 29th, 2013 7:48 AM.  B&G maintenance vehicle number 63 once again seen at Hardee's buying breakfast using a Gloucester County government vehicle for personal business.  All at the expanse of the taxpayers.  This is the same vehicle caught on Friday.  We were kidding on Friday about if you can't find a local government employee at their work, then check Hardee's.  It looks like it's not a joke after all?  If it weren't for Hardee's some Gloucester County government employees would never eat!  Ya gotta love these guys.

Numerous Complaints Of County Official Abuses of Position

We have received not one, but multiple complaints asking some valid questions. These are verified complaints that we are reporting on here.  One email sent to us reads as follows.

"Letter to the editor,

I wrote to you a few weeks ago about seeing a Gloucester County Animal Control truck being used for personal business.  I bring to your attention something much more disturbing.  Saturday evening I was traveling up Rt 17, a couple of minutes after 7:00 PM, I was at the intersection of Providence Road and Rt 17 stopped at the stoplight.  I noticed the County Garage had a garage door open, southern door, a private owned vehicle with a woman and a child in the car was going into the garage.  I have some very serious questions that should to be answered:

  1. Why was the garage open on Saturday night?
  2. Was the employee on the clock working on a privately owned vehicle?
  3. What are non-county employees doing in the garage after hours?
  4. Is the insurance company aware that these types of abuses are going on?
This appears to be a very large case of fraud, waste, and abuse by a County Employee. Are things like this going on causing county taxes to be as high as they are?"

Date of occurrence is Saturday, May 18th, 2013.   

We verified the above report with another witness to this incident.  What we learned was that the vehicle was a mid sized vehicle with a light metallic paint.
The people seen going in opened the garage door quickly and then proceeded to move the vehicle in as fast as possible then closing the garage door quickly to attract as little attention as possible.  So we are able to determine that it is a county employee with access to a key to the building.  The time frame is not in a usual county hours of operation.  

  If the people entering the building had a right to be there, why move a personal vehicle into the building?  This leaves open very valid questions as to what is going on.  Are county employees ordering parts for their personal vehicles and installing them at taxpayer expense?  Were the employees stealing tools or other equipment?  Once they opened the garage and turned on even one light, it was at taxpayer expense.  Were these people trying to hide something?  Were they trying to move something that they have been hiding?  All fair questions.  The building in question is the white building on the left hand side of the above picture.  The stoplight in question is also visible in the above picture.

  Your tax dollars working hard to enrich others.

Gloucester, VA Filing Complaints, Animal Control Officers, County Attorney, More

Ever wonder what it would take to file a complaint against a county employee such as an Animal Control officer when they are abusive to you?  Were you even aware that you could?  We decided to see what it would take to file a complaint against someone when they are abusive and seeming to go above and beyond the scope of normal decency.  We started with Gloucester County's own Employment Personnel Policies and Procedures.  There we found that Gloucester County does not tolerate from any of it's employees the following, from 10-3 of it's own code, states this as one of many reasons for disciplinary measures.

  Use of offensive, abusive, threatening, coercive, indecent or discourteous language towards supervisors, other employees, or members of the public.

  This is what is publicly stated on the Gloucester County web site and found under Human Resources. A very common complaint we have heard over and over and over again is how abusive Animal Control Officers can be towards citizens of the county.  Animal Control Officers are Gloucester County Employees so this section applies to them as much as anyone else that is an employee of Gloucester County.

  Searching even further, we found no forms to use provided by the county that would show how to file a complaint against any county employee if and or when they violate county policies.  So we created our own based on Gloucester County Personnel Policies and Procedures.  All the information was there on what to do in order to file a complaint.  The complaint is supposed to become a permanent part of the employees employment records.

  Though our form is not an officially prescribed disciplinary form, Gloucester County does not have one that is officially prescribed that the public can use.  So our form is the next best thing in light of Gloucester County's failure to create one for public use.  10-3 has other areas of offenses as well.  This link takes you right to the Human Resources of Gloucester County's section of employment policies and procedures.  You can look up other offenses there and change any part of the form to make it fit your exact complaint.

  On our form, we have a section for a notary public to sign.  This is not required, however, it is highly recommended to create a more official complaint.  You can have a notary at your local bank take care of this section for you for free in most cases.  Do not sign the form until you are in front of the notary.

  Our form is free and is not under any form of copyright.  You are welcome to change it any way you wish.
You can download the copy for free.  If you have any issues downloading a copy, you can always copy and paste the text into your word document.  Make sure you keep an exact completed and signed copy for your own records.

  Where to send and or deliver your complaint.  County Administration Building One                                                  
6467 Main Street,  Gloucester, VA 23061    Phone: 804-693-5690.  Mon. - Fri. 8:00 AM til 4:30 PM.
If you are mailing the complaint, mail it to the Director of Human Resources.  Or Patricia K Michura who is the person who presently holds that position.  If you wish to file it electronically, pmichura the email address is here.  We separated the "a" from the @ so that it would not be a live link that the bots could farm to spam her account.

  The form is designed as a single person complaint.  If there are several people in your household or group that are filing a complaint, we recommend you use a form for each person.  If you are filing a complaint against more than one person, use a complaint form for each person.  The reason for this is because of where the form is filed against each person in their employee file.

  You may also wish to send us a copy of the complaint as well.  We are starting a database that can be searched by anyone to see if there are complaints already filed and what those complaints are.  This way nothing is hidden from the public.  If you wish to have your name removed from the bottom of the complaint, let us know when you send us a copy so that we can remove that from the database files.  Just send us a scanned jpg image of the form completed.  

Here is yet another link to the form.
Again, you can copy and paste the text or download a copy of the form.  Use it anyway you need to.
