Oswego Township Highway Commissioner Bob Rogerson told the Oswego Township Board of Trustees at Tuesday night's meeting that he was sorry for irregularities in vacation cash paid out to employees.

Oswego Police conducted a two-month investigation of alleged over-payments of vacation time to two Oswego Township Road District employees.

A male Road District employee received a $2,378.40 check for vacation time on November 1, 2019, and a female Road District employee received a check for $942.31 on November 22, 2019.  

Both checks were for vacation time that allegedly had already been used.

At the Tuesday night Oswego Township Board of Trustees meeting, Yorkville activist Todd Milliron, who filed the Freedom of Information request for the documents, confronted Highway Commissioner Rogerson about the over-payments.

Rogerson told the township trustees that there were errors with the vacation pay-outs.

Rogerson then explained what is being done to solve the problem.

According to the Oswego Police, "Poor time keeping management has helped to facilitate the issues of erroneous bookkeeping and payroll issues.

"There are issues within the payroll and time keeping process that need to be addressed to help to reduce/eliminate clerical and payroll issues."

No charges have been filed against Rogerson or the employees.

It is not known if the $3,326.71 has been repaid to the Oswego Township Road District.
