Park Board Director On Unpaid Leave After Questionable Pay Advances


The head of the Springfield Park District is on unpaid leave… as the park board continues to examine hundreds of dollars he received in what is described as “salary advances.”

 

Mike Stratton requested the leave of absence as the board met behind closed doors to discuss his fate.

 

Stratton tells the State Journal-Register that he doesn’t feel that he did anything wrong, and says Park District employees are allowed to receive advances on their salary, which must be repaid.

 

Some board members have questioned who authorized the $2,100 payment in January to Stratton… who makes $95,000 a year.
