Boca Raton Council turns down request to fund countywide Inspector General

by Jennifer Sorentrue | October 9th, 2013

The Boca Raton City Council on Tuesday turned down a request to help fund Palm Beach County’s Inspector General while the city challenges the way required payments for the countywide office are calculated.

Boca Raton is one of 14 municipalities that have filed suit against the county over payments for Inspector General Sheryl Steckler’s office. The cities have refused to pay for the office while the suit is pending.

Boca Raton Councilman Anthony Majhess on Tuesday asked his counterparts of the five-member board to consider finding a way to pay for Steckler’s office while the lawsuit works its way through the court system.

The council voted 3-2, with Majhess and Deputy Mayor Susan Haynie dissenting, against the request.

“The public opinion is that the intention of the lawsuit is to defund the inspector general’s office,” Majhess told the council. “We will be demonstrating that we do support the office of the inspector general and we are not wishing to defund that office.”

Mayor Susan Whelchel said it the council should wait until the lawsuit is settled before deciding whether to help pay for Steckler’s office.

“Every single time that this subject comes up then people try to pin on a city council that they must not want the inspector general,” she said. “They try to tie the money issue with the dislike of the inspector general. That is a nice political ploy. It is just that is it simply not correct.”

    Majhess files for mayor then makes this ploy for votes on the same day. Haynie isn’t going to let you get daylight on this populist stuff anymore. You should have stayed in your council seat.

    I don’t get the whole “we support the Inspector Generals Office” we just don’t want to have to pay for it. I guess they don’t have a lot of respect for taxpayer intelligence in Boca.
