Clark County employee’s salary subsidized by diverted funds

Then-commissioners instructed Clark-Floyd Landfill to pay highway superintendent $14,000 per year



Included in the documents obtained through the request are spreadsheets that break down the amount of tonnage taken in by the landfill, the corresponding revenue earned and the host fees owed by the landfill corporation to the county for all four quarters of 2012 and the first two quarters of 2013. Also included in each spreadsheet is a field titled “approved deductions,” which equals the amount owed by the corporation to Ross. 

In the spreadsheets from 2012, the amount of the “approved deductions” is $3,500. In the first two quarters of 2013, the amount is $4,000. 

Coffman and Stephenson both said they had no prior knowledge of the arrangement, and both denied having asked that the amount paid to Ross be increased. An attempt to contact Commissioner John Perkins via his cell phone was unsuccessful, and a message could not be left because his mailbox was full. A callback number was left, but Perkins did not return the call.
