Trustees Critical of Assessor Ditton’s Budget Request
At Monday evenings Avon Township monthly meeting the fireworks carried over from the earlier Finance Meeting where budgets were presented and discussed. You may recall that even though Avon Township Assessor Chris Ditton was aware that his budget was cut directly proportional to other areas of the Avon Township activities, he continued to burn through his allotted funds until his department ran out and he closed the assessor’s office to the public, referring residents to Lake County. Supposedly, Ditton continued to work in the field on tax protest assessments and showed up occasionally in his office or worked from home.
Ditton didn’t get the warm welcome he may have expected as Trustees grilled him on alternative staffing models, his failure to show up at previous meetings, and numerous other things.
