Hearing For Suspended Ramapo Fiscal Officer Continues

Melissa Reimer, suspended Supervisor of Fiscal Services for the town of Ramapo, had her second disciplinary hearing Thursday. The town suspended Reimer from her position within the district due to misconduct and charges that she attempted to alter police documents of an officer that she was apparently having an affair with, as well as charges of perjury. In January Reimer secretly recorded interviews with Deputy Town Attorney Beth Finkelstein and Personnel Director Linda Condon, even after she was warned that it was not permitted. She is also being accused of later lying about it while under oath. Reimer’s lawyer, Fred Lichtmacher, made statements that the recordings are not the issue– the hearings were called because Reimer refused to turn over the recordings to the town after she was ordered to do so. Lichtmacher also said that Reimer made complaints against the town, before the FBI raided and seized records from the Ramapo Town Hall on May 16. Most complaints were especially focused on Supervisor Christopher St. Lawrence. After Reimer questioned town finances, the town suspended her on charges of misconduct and according to Lichtmacher the town is reaching for reasons to fire Reimer. The hearing will return to court August 12th.
