In a town budget $595 doesn’t seem like a lot of money, but for Assistant Animal Control Officer Martha Stephens it’s a very important issue, the Waterbury Republican-American reports.
Stephens underwent training for her job costing $595 but the town leaders have denied reimbursing her claiming she didn’t get the request approved by a department head and the first selectman’s office, reports Chris Gardner, of the Republican-American.
The town had been in a budget crunch because of excessive snow removal costs and training had been postponed, the paper reports.
Stephens tells the Republican-American she will continue to fight for her reimbursement.
