LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A sign posted on the door of the Fairfield Township office says the building is closed due to COVID-19 concerns. But one former employee says that's not the full story.
Trisha Fogleman, the former office manager, says the township office closed last week after she and the last remaining full-time employee, a caseworker, walked out July 29.
Fogleman cited concerns about township operations and management by Trustee Taletha Coles.
She says no one is working in the office except for Coles, but the door remains locked and the office phone was not answered Thursday morning and afternoon.
The sign on the front door says township business is being conducted by email and phone.
News 18 emailed Coles about the staffing situation but didn't hear back.
Township Board President Stephen Snyder says the board has "no comment on the staffing situation at the Fairfield Township Office."
