May 18, 2011 - Lake Orion Community School Treasurer Jim Weidman is a little miffed these days.

At last Wednesday's board of education meeting he adamantly recommended the board exercise its right under election law and request an impartial review of the charges Oakland County billed the district for its assistance in the February bond election. He said the $43,000 in expenses were "exuberant and way out of line" with what was expected, considering similar elections in the past were ran for as little as $4,000.

Weidman said the county's explanations for the charges were inadequate. Board President Mary Jo Burchart said, "not a penny will be paid to anyone until we get some answers."

The next school board meeting is slated for next Wednesday, May 25 in the Administration Building.
