The dominoes are tumbling. Everyone has an opinion about Wally Bayliss’ ill gotten goods. This thing is still playing out. And it won’t stop with Wally, (the poor bastard).
From the Blog of Record:
LOWELL — The city is targeting the Retirement Board, an autonomous city agency, for nearly $100,000 the city paid in retiree health benefits to former License Commission member Walter Bayliss Jr., who the current board has determined was improperly granted retirement in 2006.
In a letter submitted to the Retirement Board last Friday, City Solicitor Christine O’Connor says the city paid approximately $97,000 towards Bayliss’ health-insurance premiums from 2006 to the present.
“But for the Board inappropriately allowing Mr. Bayliss into the retirement system in 1995, and further allowing him to retire in 2006, the City would have never incurred such expenses,” O’Connor wrote.
“This letter is to inform the board that the city intends to hold the board responsible for its actions in this matter as well as for any and all damage that the city has and may incur as a result of such actions.”
In the letter, O’Connor highlights that the board approved Bayliss’ entrance into the retirement system in 1995 based on documents saying he had served on the License Commission.
Bayliss had in fact served on the Lowell Memorial Auditorium Board of Trustees from 1984 to 1995 and was not compensated.
Level heads will prevail. The Tuesday Night Kabuki, City Life & the Blogs will all go quite, right after the November election.
And, it will all come down to these:
Public Employee Retirement Administration Commission (PERAC)
I’ll see you on the other side.
