Darmstadt residents gather over misconduct allegations

Local

DARMSTADT, Ind (WEHT) – Darmstadt residents came together again on Monday to discuss allegations of misconduct against town employees.

The Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office is investigating allegations of theft and misspending centered around the town’s maintenance superintendent. No formal charges have been filed in this investigation and therefore Eyewitness News is not naming the superintendent.

Some town residents say they have evidence showing the superintendent using town owned equipment and the town’s credit card for personal expenses. Residents are also calling for the town council president to resign.

Darmstadt Town Council member Roy Engler met with residents to give an update on the investigation and show support for town maintenance workers.

“What the town wants is to stop harassing the maintenance people,” said Engler. “That’s where they want to start. The guys are under constant pressure to resign or quit or be terminated, and they’ve not done anything wrong. No one has accused them of anything wrong except for the town president.”

A meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Thursday at the Town Hall.
