Details emerge on firing of C-UPHD Treasurer
More details have emerged on the firing of the Champaign-Urbana Public Health District Treasurer.
The district board on Monday voted to fire Jay Ehlman, saying that he exceeded his authority and disregarded district policy.
At the request of the WDWS news department, the C-UPHD provided a video recording of Monday's board meeting. Board Chairwoman Michelle Mayol gave a statement at that meeting detailing some of Ehlman's alleged actions.
Mayol also said that Ehlman attended all-staff meetings, read audit reports, requested to review resumes and told an employee that she would get a promotion. Those are all things, she said, that he was not authorized to do.
C-UPHD Board Member Al Kurtz did tell the WDWS news department, though, that Ehlman is not accused of doing anything illegal.
The WDWS news department could not reach Ehlman for comment.
