OC Taxpayer’s paying for expensive invisible library staff uniforms

Did ja know OC library staff now has uniforms? If my memory is correct to the tune of 1,200 dollars. What the uniforms are I don't know. No record of uniforms noted in the minutes of library board meetings. Minutes reflect approval of Logo wear purchase for staff, May 2013. If staff has uniforms they are not wearing them. Shouldn’t library board members have created a uniform policy before purchase and payment? Has the OC taxpayer again been ripped off to pay for staff’s logo shirts that they can or don’t have to wear? When was the last time the city bought the residents logo shirts? Oh, that’s right, I forget residents just foot the bills for the parasitic library employee’s.  Generally speaking if one’s employer provides a uniform the uniform is worn when the employee works. What is going on over at the library? It does not appear that the board is competent to administer library affairs? Most members follow and accept the lead of the library director. Some have no voice at all. I’d identify by name but they were not identifiable at the meeting.

What's a library?

In Epidemiology it's the core of a pathological parasitic population. In farming, I believe, it’s heifer’s feeding at the trough.

In the same vein, You, Pale Rider were a live birth abortion? Lets stick to the topic. I know it's hard for you to follow the subject matter with such poor opportunity and limited knowledge and abilities. However, in the future, I will flag your posts that are obnoxious, posts that border on libel and do not pertain to the subject.

Pale Rider, CLUE: Topic is: library staff and uniforms. Have you ever seen library staff wearing a uniform? Does the library have policy regarding staff use of uniforms? OR has the library board snookered OC residents with the costs of expensive OC logo shirts? How many uniforms for which staff? You may also choose to respond to Cody's question, What is a Library?

Roughly 15 part time staff of which three are subs. One shirt each to the tune of 80 bucks a piece that they don't have any rules/policy regulating? I do not call this cheap. I call it a rip off of the tax payer for the benefit of a few. Library board and director do not appear to conduct business legally for a whole variety of reasons. Most obvious being the board doesn't appear to have a clue as to what their job and accountability is. Board Members are: Pat Parks, Pam Aiken, Carol Sagan, Karen Ulbs with a representative from both the schools and council who's roles are primarily advisory in nature.

Lets do a comparative so you fully understand what is going on here. Streets provides uniforms via a uniform service for employees I do not believe clerical staff not working in the field is included. The library is basically a clean environment other than materials borrowed and returned which could be a huge cess pool of germs if materials are not sanitized upon return. Most libraries have established procedure. In short what I'm trying to say is library personnel normally do not wear uniforms. Plastic gloves I would think would be mandatory to handle returns until after they are sanitized. Unfortunately, OC staff is resistant to wiping hard surfaces on items returned and the director unwilling it appears to enforce. In 1918 the deadly Spanish Flu was spread to one town that closed down to all transient visitors except the US Mail which delivered the flu to them. Generally, when one works part-time one uniform is issued with the employee maintaining the uniform.

Where did you go to school Pale Rider? Do you have a HS diploma? Are you one of those kids that didn't learn to sit down, shut up, listen and learn? Were you special ed? BEcause, had you paid attention you would have learned printer ink (this is what is used to create words on the pages of books) is toxic. The least expensive and most effective way to sanitize library materials would be to wipe with a damp rag saturated (and wrung out) with a simple household beach solution. I believe it's two tablespoons per gallon of water.

No. If your looking at an Oak Creek, Zip Code in the student body I believe your looking at Mark and Kim Verhalen's daughter Megan who attended Oxford three or four years back.
vocal local 1 February 10, 2014 at 04:00 PM
Please, You don't evidence even 8th grade abilities in writing or word choice and you'd expect me to believe you attended Oxford? I don't think so. Your abilities and knowledge base like the housewives that make up our library board is simply too low. Unfortunately, low level intelligence in decision making positions is problematic in small communities where nepotism is the leading appointment and hiring factor. Remember, the subordinate always knows more about the dominant than the reverse. Also, know the courts unlike municipal councils do not allow miscarriage of justice. In short the courts don't honor the majority, they honor the principles and application of law.

Do you understand why I am questioning the libraries uniform charges? Why I want to know why they are paying for copy cost for Savage. Why I want to know where the rules are posted. How can patrons know the rules and be subject to penalty if they are not made aware of the rules. Why I want to know why people are not allowed to wash ink out of their hair perhaps in the bathrooms, why library staff would want a rule allowing them to ask patrons to leave if they are omitting a strong body odor? Why there isn't any smoking allowed within 25 feet of the building? What happened to the cigarette butt containers? Why they would want a rule related to exterior littering when they don't maintain the exterior of the library? Why people who chew tobacco can't chew in the library? Why they allow dirty diapers in the rest rooms and have a changing area? Why people on drugs will be asked to leave by staff that is not trained to determine who's on first?

Wow! You may be right. I probably am delusional in expectations of sound morals, integrity, and rationale and good judgment from the elect, board members, commissioners and departmental administrators, as I know those that support them don’t have a clue other than self-interest and gain. I should be a good little sheeple and not raise issue or become alarmed when I see stupid. The voters and the elect are not the majority I remind you. They are members of the hidden political machine that has been screwing up OC for a very long time. Your apt to find them hanging at the Legion, Members of the Lions the good ole boys clubs. Surely, I am insane for thinking my alderman who killed a disabled/handicapped one armed resident, who tested drunk at the time of action wasn’t innocent and shouldn’t have gotten off scott free. I must be confused in thinking he should have been convicted of a felony and not eligible to hold office. In turn, I must also be really, really, confused in not understanding the character of others in the community who continue to accept this man as an upstanding citizen, member of Christian church, successful businessman. After all, even though the incident didn’t happen in his home his homeowner’s insurance paid off the widow a token amount and he maintained his social standing in the community. I remind you at the same time a young black male who was socked first, who in self defense struck back causing the white male to hit his head on the curb and die went to prison in our southern community, Kenosha. Yep, I probably need some psychotropic meds that will clear my head of all my insane thoughts. WHAT WAS THAT NUMBER?

In the interim would it be legal for you to share some of your meds with me? Do they really have padded cells, straight jackets and lock one in at night? It would appear your Electro-Shock therapy worked. How many treatments did you have?

Pale Rider, I will leave you with: It is the public's responsibility to monitor and direct government. My generation has been a complete failure in protecting the constitution. The residents of my community are failures as related to involvement and exercise of rights and responsibility in regard to local government. Whereas council chambers used to be packed to over flowing it is now dismally empty. Silence is evidence of agreement and approval. On some issues I agree more with President Putin that my own, Barack Obama. We are in a very sad state of affairs. Are the trees outside of governmental building planted for a greater use than shade and decor? I better be careful. "They're coming to take me away today. Away to the funny farm today. They'll lock me take away my butts. They're coming to take me away." My Great-Great-Grandfather was angry with the church for refusing to bury one of his son's for belonging to a secret organization. He was fond of saying: "The day is coming when they are going to lock up the sane to protect them from the insane."
