Clark-Edgar Rural Water District terminates Office Manager / Bookkeeper –

OLIVER, IL. (ECWd) –

It has been reported to us that there is a shake-up of employee(s) at the Clark-Edgar Rural Water District (“CERWD”) – with the unexpected termination of its long-time office manager and bookkeeper, Lisa Rigdon, as of this morning.

She had a fairly lucrative compensation package with a vehicle, insurance, and being the highest paid employee of the district totaling at somewhere around $58,000 per year.

We have been hearing rumored rumblings for the past couple of months, but did not expect this.

We have reached out to the CERWD for comment, but have not been successful as of this initial publication.

Last fall the General Manager retired from the water district, resulting in the hiring of a new General Manager.

The Clark-Edgar Rural Water District is a public water district with elected water district commissioners, and massive amounts of debt.

    Perhaps the wrath of a terminated employee is enough to remove a layer or two of muck and render the organizational goings-on a bit more transparent.

    Government is suppose to be transparent.
    Lot’s of us watching.
