Not entitled to per diem (06/23/2013)
From: Virginia Kautz

Zumbro Township,

Wabasha County

Leadership is a privilege to better the lives of others. It is not an opportunity to satisfy personal need. Wabasha County Commissioner Springer hasnít grasped this concept. On April 22, Commissioner Wobbe, Roschen, and Springer attended a court proceeding regarding the Government Study Commission. This court proceeding was not a board approved or required function. Roschen and Wobbe did not submit a per diem because they knew they were not entitled to one. Springer, on the other hand, contends he is eligible for a $45 per diem because the County was implicated in the proceedings. Wrong. County Attorney Nordstrom stated Wabasha County was not an adverse party to the legal motion. If Wobbe and Roschen understand, why does Springer think he is entitled to one? Remember per diems are in addition to salary (sometimes per diems add up to more than salary).

What is more disturbing about this issue is that there is no county procedure or systems in place to verify these per diems are legitimate. It was John Q. Public that caught this error, not a county employee.
