One Sumpter Township Trustee expressed her displeasure at being disturbed on “family days” to conduct her elected duties.
During a special meeting called on Sunday, Aug. 15, Trustee Peggy Morgan soundly criticized the scheduling of the meeting. The brief Zoom meeting had only one agenda action item, the hiring of a part-time clerk in the treasurer's office.
Morgan insisted that the hiring vote could have waited until the regular meeting of the board scheduled for the next week. She claimed that this could be “the first time in the history that a meeting was called on Sunday to hire a part-time employee.”
