Mayor Lockwood Sets the Record Straight
Mr. Santi has suggested repeatedly that Julie was responsible for an $850,000 loss in revenue - "Though the city manager became the scapegoat, her actions were largely responsible for the city's loss of $850,000 in revenue"
There is not a shred of truth to Mr. Santi's claim - it is completely false. Julie had no hand in this situation at all and, in fact, the revenue has not been "lost," as Mr. Santi continues to claim.
Mayor Joe Lockwood Reports the Facts
"I have been asked by several people about the allegation that Julie Zahner Bailey was responsible for the missed filing date of the insurance premium tax deadline, which may delay the receipt of up to $850,000 in additional revenue for the city of Milton next year, and I certainly want our citizens to know the correct facts.
Mrs. Bailey would have had no more responsibility in this filing deadline than myself, council members D'aversa, Mohrig, Lusk, O'Brien, and Thurman. This was an operations issue, and with our form of government, the council would have not even been aware of it until after the fact.
I also want our residents to know that I, Council, and staff are on top of this situation and pledge to make sure that the City of Milton gets the benefit of this tax that is generated by insurance companies doing business in Milton."
